Reading Time: 2 minutes

CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–NextGen Growth Partners LLC (NGP), a Chicago-based private equity firm
that acquires and builds businesses alongside entrepreneurial operators,
recently visited a group of young entrepreneurs at Northside College
Preparatory High School (Northside) in Chicago’s North Park neighborhood.

Brian O’Connor, NGP Founder and Managing Partner, spoke with the Future
Business Leaders of Northside Student Club about the meaning of
entrepreneurship, business leadership and proactivity in the working
world. O’Connor says, “The students were so engaged and asked smart and
thoughtful questions. It’s inspiring to see high school students already
proactively thinking about their careers, how to make a difference, and
what leadership means.”

The Northside students were enthusiastic about their time with O’Connor.
“To have a speaker of such pedigree and experience give his time to
teach us meant a lot,” shared one club member. “Professor O’Connor
wanted the presentation to be as dynamic as possible and left ample time
for us to ask questions and engage with him on topics of interest to us.
I hope Future Business Leaders will continue to stay in touch with him
going forward,” said another student.

NGP and O’Connor, a faculty member at The University of Chicago Booth
School of Business, are committed supporters of educational causes and
student support services in the Chicago area. Last November, NGP made a
donation to Distinctive Schools, a Chicago-based non-profit operator of
public charter schools focused on social justice and the elevation of
access to achievement in underserved communities. O’Connor says, “Our
business is all about people. Businesses, and our communities, grow and
flourish because of people. When we focus on providing youth with the
right tools, resources, access, and mentorship; we all benefit.”
