Want to experience a week of business education with a group of like-minded peers?


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. Our first session was such a fun, interactive week that one student said:

“I loved the environment of this course – entertaining, engaging and hands-on. I never lost focus (even though I have ADHD). I learned so much about business, and how to come up with an idea and start a business!”

During the boot camp, 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 and honing their entrepreneurial skills!

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?
