Beast Mode a Business with Marshawn Lynch of Oakland Raiders
BEASTMODE A Business Competition
We partnered with NFL superstar Marshawn Lynch to teach
entrepreneurial skills to high school students in Oakland,
California and the Bay Area.
And those skills were put to the test as BEASTMODE-A-Business
is a competition with real stakes for these high schoolers.
After attending workshops and seminars and building their own
Shopify stores, the thirty students pitched their business
ideas to family, friends and a panel of judges at Oakland
Technical High School.
Marshawn and Josh Johnson, quarterback for New York giants were
among the judges who chose the top two BEASTMODE-A-Business
Simone Hufana, 17 from San Leandro high school in San Leandro,
and Mathew Galvez, 17 from Abraham Lincoln high school in San
Jose, were the overall winners of the ‘BEASTMODE-A-Business’
competition. They both won, among other prizes, free Shopify
Basic for three years, an opportunity to have their pop-up
store hosted by Beast Mode Apparel in Oakland
All 30 students also received free Chromebook laptops preloaded
with documentation on building a Shopify store, free Shopify
Basic for a year, backpacks filled with school supplies, as
well as clothing from Beast Mode apparel.
