Let Students Lead!
Looking for an innovative and interactive after school program that builds life, academic and personal skills while keeping your student engaged? Entrepreneurship is a proven way to ignite a teen’s creativity, curiosity and innovative spirit. Teens will get to explore their passions and academic strengths as they start to ideate and create their own business. They’ll learn how to take a product or service from idea to being the next big thing. While this program is intended to encourage teens to work in teams, many decide to work solo on their business idea.
Along the way, teens will get to explore their industry interests and learn from entrepreneurs’ case studies. Intended to demonstrate how entrepreneurs in multiple industries turned an idea into a successful business, and unfortunately, why some failed.
At the conclusion of the program, teens will have ideated a product or service, written a business plan and will present their pitch at the conclusion of the program in a showcase event to relatives, friends, and special guests. All teens are invited to present their pitch at Project ECHO’s High School Entrepreneurs’ Business Plan Competition!
Give your teen something they can call their own, get excited about, and in the end feel very accomplished for completing this unique program.
