Empowered Teen Entrepreneurship Summer Camp

2012 Empowered Teen Entrepreneurship Camp Students

This one week camp, conducted by Anderson Center faculty and local entrepreneurs, is specifically designed for high school students who are interested in becoming value-creating entrepreneurs at some point in their future. Students learn the steps to an empowered life, method to make dreams a reality, idea evaluation, business planning and team work. 

The first camp was completed in August 2012. Fourteen aspiring entrepreneurs from 10 area high schools spent one intense week living the life of an entrepreneur. In that short time, they developed a business plan, business card, video commercial and advertising poster. Read more about their experiences here
