Become An Investor

Investors and Friends of CEO are the heart of the Edwardsville CEO program.

Dear valued community member, 

In Edwardsville CEO, the community is our classroom. 

CEO is a transformational program for high school seniors from Edwardsville High School, Father McGivney Catholic High School and Metro-East Lutheran High School. During the course of their senior year, our students tour and connect with dozens of area businesses and guest speakers. Together, students develop a class business venture in the fall and launch an individual business in the spring.  Through these interactions and experiences, our goal is to help our students develop an entrepreneurial mindset which, we believe, will help set them up for success no matter which career path they choose. 

Our program is 100% funded by generous contributions from local businesses and individuals. Without our program investors, business leaders, mentors, school representatives, parents and supportive community members, CEO would not be possible. 

The link below lists the many ways that community members can connect with our program, including investment opportunities, guest speaking, mentoring and more! Upon submitting this form, one of our team members will be in contact with you to follow up with your inquiry. 

Thank you for your interest in becoming involved with Edwardsville CEO. your contribution of time, energy, resources and support is making a tremendous impact in the lives of our students and community.

With deepest gratitude,

Edwardsville CEO
