The Bonsai Finance Entrepreneur Scholarship celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit in high performing students. At Bonsai Finance, we believe the Entrepreneurial spirit is a mindset that embraces critical questioning, innovation, service, and continuous improvement. It’s an attitude and approach to thinking that actively seeks out change, rather than waiting to adapt to change.
