Introduction to Entrepreneurship for Teens
Any teen interested in learning about entrepreneurship is encouraged to attend! Throughout the day, you will hear stories from real life entrepreneurs about how they started their own business and how you could start your own! This will be an interactive, hands-on day facilitated by a successful entrepreneur. You will work in teams throughout the day to walk through the process of manufacturing a product, creating plans, learning about product differentiation and market strategy with changing market conditions, and how to set a price for a product or service. This event is meant to be a fun way to explore if entrepreneurship might be a great career option for you! Lunch will be provided.
