About this grant

This renewal grant provides support to Mott Community College for the Teen CEO Initiative, which offers a six-week summer camp entrepreneurial experience for 30 economically disadvantaged teenagers aged 14-18. Using tested business curriculum and experiential learning opportunities, the initiative teaches students about the basic skills required to launch a successful new business venture. Participants compete against each other to develop the strongest business plan to win all or a portion of an award of $10,000 startup capital to fund the new business.
