About Us


Aerie MN is a nonprofit organization that equips young people with the values and vision to pursue their dreams. Our mission is to cultivate and empower an entrepreneurial within students by equipping them through training, coaching, lending and providing space for incubation and growth.

Our mission is to expose youth to the business world through our experiential learning model, fostering the development of business literacy and leadership skills necessary to be more successful in school and in life.

What we do

While Aerie is open to all students, we take care to facilitate a pipeline to success for high school students from underserved and diversity backgrounds. This helps many of our students escape the cycle of hopelessness that occurs far too often in communities across America. Once Aerie students complete our programs, they become part of our alumni network, a diverse community of talent, and can transition seamlessly from student to corporate culture with a deep understanding of business and finance.

Aerie features:

  • Seminar and Workshops
  • Entrepreneurship Tours
  • Summer Business Camp
  • In-house business coaching
  • One-on-one business counseling
