Foster City, CA (I-Newswire) February 20, 2013 - The BizWorld Foundation, a national nonprofit dedicated to teaching entrepreneurial, finance and business skills to kids, will hold a Camp BizWorld at Visa's corporate office.

Students will gain valuable real world skills and inspiration by participating in the BizWorld program and receiving positive encouragement from employee volunteers.

During the two day event, Visa employees will volunteer their time and work directly with the student companies as mentors as well as play different roles such as Venture Capitalist and Company Advisors.
"Camp BizWorld is a rewarding and enriching volunteer activity ; the experience inspires students to better understand the business world, and Visa employees are given the opportunity to volunteer their knowledge and business acumen, " said Nathan Nayman, of Visa.
