Join us at the Young Entrepreneurs Academy 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.
Students will have just five minutes to pitch their ideas before fielding questions from the investors, who will then determine how much funding to award to each venture. One student will also be selected to advance to the YEA! National Saunders Scholars competition later this spring.
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.
This event is free and open to the public. Register to save your seat today!
