Samelly Alejo, 17, of Design for Fusions, showed a product to Barry Nearhos, Northeast managing partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers, during the grand opening of the Build student business incubator at Jeremiah E. Burke High School in Dorchester. Student entrepreneurs at the Burke and the Community Academy of Science and Health are getting their own business incubators, complete with 3-D printers, computers, and T-shirt presses. Build, a nonprofit that prepares at-risk students for college, is using $100,000 in funding from PwC to outfit the labs with equipment to grow their businesses.
