Youth Entrepreneur Program

Are you interested in business? Do you want to start your own company?

Of the many young individuals who wish to start their own company or business, few understand where to begin. The daunting task of developing a business, seeking investors, and supporting it through its crucial first few years of needed expansion is not regularly considered and taught to the emerging generation who research shows are increasingly more likely to want to run and develop their own businesses.

This four day program spans two weeks and will introduce you to the many different aspects of starting a business. Throughout the program, you’ll be exposed to the different methods of planning a business, as well as how to market and incorporate your company.  

This summer of 2021 the Youth Entrepreneur Program will be held virtually.

If you’re an aspiring young entrepreneur or you’re simply interested in learning more about the world of business, then come join us! You’ll receive hands-on experience and learn from entrepreneurial guest speakers. You’ll have the opportunity to develop your own mock business and learn about:

Towards the end of the program, we will be hosting a Business Pitch Competition where groups present their pitch to a panel of investors and the winners will receive prizes!
