The Young Entrepreneurs Academy is putting on a virtual Investor Panel. Be the first to hear what exciting businesses these bright students have been working on! Local business leaders will serve as judges and award funding in a “Shark Tank” style format.
Our top finalist will have five minutes to pitch their ideas before fielding questions from the investors, who will then determine how much funding each business venture will be awarded. One student will be selected to advance to the YEA! National Saunders Scholars competition later this year.
Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) is an after school program that transforms middle and high school students into real, confident entrepreneurs. This year-long program provides resources to students in grades 6-12 to generate business ideas, conduct market research, write business plans, pitch to a panel of investors and launch their own company.
