We’ve partnered with YELL (Youth Entrepreneurship Leadership Launchpad) to bring a summer boot camp to students who want to learn about the tools and exercises entrepreneurs use to turn their vision into reality. Students will hear from inspiring local entrepreneurs and business leaders, work with a small group of like-minded peers, and develop problem-solving skills, all while building their extracurricular profile!
The Young Entrepreneur Summer Workshop is a week-long boot camp that will introduce you to the tools and exercises that entrepreneurs use to turn their vision into reality. You’ll learn about entrepreneurship, design thinking, how to validate if people are interested in your idea, and much more. Whether you come with an idea or not, the program will culminate in your pitching a start-up concept to judges, and we’ll help you get there! 65% of youth say they’re interested in starting their own business; are you one of them?
