This is great! We are trying to do something similar for middle school kids in NYC in a program called MicroInterns. Check these kids out on twitter (http://twitter.com/microinterns) and on Inc : http://www.inc.com/articles/201102/george-haines-tech-compan...

It is amazing how savvy these kids are on new media stuff.

This is awesome! The SwipeGood Team will definitely participate!

Awesome! I'll be in touch later today!

This seems like a great project. I think even brief exposure to entrepreneurs and startups could make a huge difference in these kids' lives.

I think you mean to say "businesses" where you currently say "companies"; unless you intend for these kids to quit school.

As a recent high school graduate I wish we had something like this in the inner city schools of NYC.

this is really cool! after mentoring with the BUILD.org organizatin, I can only say good things about programs like these. I'd love to help but will be out of town that week! Keep up the great work.
