A seamless, integrated experience that gets the best entrepreneurial skill-building opportunities in front of students.
All parties involved get a say in what resources reach our students:
Educators choose the products that work best for them.
Providers decide where and how they want to offer resources.
Sponsors decide how they will direct their support.
When all three align, a match is made and educators get a grant – without any paperwork!
YIPPEE! Simple and Easy.
It takes just the click of a button to get started!
Register for YIPPEE and get started. Participate in professional education and share product feedback online to get points to purchase products.
Search a range of resources to find the right one for your students, select it and use your points to make the purchase.
No need for points. There are many free products.
Choose resources from national and local providers that deliver on the promise to build the entrepreneurial skillset. Once you purchase a product, the provider then contacts you to coordinate the delivery and implementation of the product.

Educators choose your resource and pay for it with their YIPPEE points
Each product provider will have their own storefront filled with different products.
Once the educator chooses your resource, YIPPEE will provide you with the educator’s contact information. You connect with the educator to arrange for delivery of your entrepreneurship education product.
Get paid for your entrepreneurial lesson
Payment occurs within the system, eliminating some paperwork for you. All you need to do is complete a short verification form letting us know about your experience. Dollars will be sent directly to your bank in a 1-to-1 ratio to the points used by the educator to purchase the product.
Want to develop entrepreneurial skills in today’s youth?
YIPPEE is the place where sponsors can invest their dollars to help achieve their youth entrepreneurship goals. When an educator chooses an entrepreneurship lesson, the sponsor has already agreed to pay the product provider through their support of YIPPEE!
Sponsors have on-demand access to how their funds are being used
If the entrepreneurial skillset and building 21st century skills is part of your funding mission, we’d love to connect and discuss how YIPPEE can work for you.
