The objectives of the program are to: 1) provide participants with the competencies needed to operate a business, including business plan development; 2) offer youth additional skill building opportunities through mentorships and job shadowing; 3) help students develop a higher education career pathway plan; and 4) pilot a special program track dedicated to encouraging entrepreneurship around applied technology and manufacturing. Upon completion, 15 participants will be eligible to receive $1,000 of venture capital seed money to launch their enterprise.
