About us Understanding that high school students from underserved communities lack the support and resources needed to access consistent mentorship and gain exposure to real-world business experience, AMBITION was founded by luxury handbag owner/designer Nancy Gale of JAMAH, with a business model that connects cause with commerce.With a curriculum grounded in entrepreneurship, AMBITION empowers students through team building, interpersonal skills, accountability and healthy competition — exposing them to numerous aspects of running a business including strategic planning, project management, conflict resolution, time management, research, consumer demographics, product development, marketing, and branding.Through a multitude of problem-solving endeavors, the AMBITION journey validates that with determination, self-discipline and hard work, they can do anything they set their minds to and live a life without limitations.AMBITION is based in Los Angeles, California. Since its inception, the program has gained high profile attention from coveted guests and mentors including Richard Branson, founder of THE VIRGIN GROUP, Aaron Walton, founder of WALTON ISAACSON, Carter Reum, founder of M13 COMPANY, Toni Ko, founder of NYX COSMETICS and BESPOKE BEAUTY BRANDS, Jane Wurwand, founder of DERMALOGICA and THE INTERNATIONAL DERMAL INSTITUTE, Steve Schimmel, a founding business team member and 13th employee at GOOGLE, and President Bill Clinton.AMBITION is committed to encouraging businesses to serve as a training ground for today’s youth and join our ultimate mission of an intrinsic connection between cause and commerce. Together, with our mentors and partners, AMBITION is able to bring to life a much-needed resource for building better futures in our communities.
