The Singleton Foundation for Financial Literacy & Entrepreneurship has partnered with Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization (CEO) to encourage the entrepreneurial spirit on college campuses around the world, according to a recent press release. The partnership will help advance the missions of both organizations as they approach entrepreneurship and financial literacy in unique ways.
The Singleton Foundation uses the power of entertainment in its Million Stories Media and Venture Valley Game projects to make financial competence fun and engaging for everyone while promoting entrepreneurship and inspiring individual achievement.
Million Stories is a new, free digital lifestyle and entertainment channel that offers a range of bite-sized original programming focusing on career, money, and inspiring stories of entrepreneurs from all walks of life.
Venture Valley is a free exciting multiplayer game that allows users to start their own business and then grow it into a virtual empire, with the opportunity to win real-world prizes.

Globally, CEO represents 250 universities and college chapters domestically as well as chapters located across the globe, made up of 16,000 collegiate entrepreneurs. The mission of CEO is to inform, support and motivate college students to be more entrepreneurial via new venture creation.
The Singleton Foundation is sponsoring the CEO’s newly designed Resource Portal, ensuring that students and campuses will have the resources they need to help them manage their businesses and financial futures.
Through the partnership, CEO members will have the opportunity to act as Singleton Ambassadors and will amplify the original content created by the foundation.
