Young Entrepreneurs features 4 phases: Tech Training, Innovation, Pitch Perfect, and Incubation.
Phase 1: Tech Training
During weeks 1-4, kids will go through an exciting technology adventure as they explore the latest and greatest in the world of STEM! Learning about 3D Design, App Development, Graphic Design, Coding, and more, kids will get a solid foundation to help them bring their amazing ideas to life.
Phase 2: Innovation
In weeks 5-10, kids will work with a small group to identify a problem, develop a solution, and bring it to life. Leveraging the skills, passions, and personalities of their group, kids will collaborate to apply their new skills and create a prototype of their solution in an exciting and creative environment, all with the support of our expert mentors.
Phase 3: Pitch Perfect
During weeks 11 and 12, kids are developing a business presentation for their idea and presenting it to our panel of Investors, who have lots of exciting opportunities for our Young Entrepreneurs including mentorship, resources, and even access to grants and funding.
Phase 4: Incubation
The Incubation phase is optional. If kids really want to level up their game and move their idea forward, we are here to support them with our facilities, staff, and resources, even after the program is over, This means they can take advantage of the investments they gained and truly make their prototype a reality.
