Local students, ages 12-18, in the Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) will present their business plans before a panel of local business leaders at the Investor Panel Event at Marymount University.
Each student business will have five minutes to pitch their business plans to the panel of investors. The panel will then ask each student three questions. Based on the appeal and merit of the students’ plans and presentations, representatives from investor companies will determine the amount of funds to allocate to each business or social movement.
The participating investors will also select the one business group that will advance to the Young Entrepreneurs Academy Saunders Scholars National College Scholarship competition, where they will compete for hundreds of thousands of dollars in college scholarships and the opportunity to present their business plan at the America’s Small Business Summit in Washington, DC. Free for students and teachers
