D.R.E.A.M. Hosts 2018 Invest in Success Stock Pitch Competition

We at D.R.E.A.M. are relentless in our mission to share the knowledge of investing and prudent financial management, especially in communities that traditionally have been under-invested when compared to society at large. With that, it is our belief that getting our youth interested in investing at a younger age will have a positive, long-term benefit to these respective communities.

On June 16th, 2018 in New York City, D.R.E.A.M. hosted the 2018 Invest in Success Stock Pitch Competition. Our hallmark competition is a capstone project for year two of the Invest in Success program. The objective of the competition is for scholars to employ their knowledge of the capital markets and build a stock portfolio that generates returns that beats their peers.

Please join us in congratulating the co-winners from this year’s competition – Kailen Mayfield (Eagle Academy, Bronx, NY) and Jeremiah Hillaire (Fieldston School, Bronx, NY). Each scholar delivered an excellent presentation displaying their knowledge of individual stocks to a panel of judges.  In conjunction with the victory, each scholar will receive a cash prize that it is to be used exclusively to initiate their individual investing journeys.
