Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) – IP Presentation – May 9, 2017

Posted in General Commentary by Jake Ward on May 13, 2017

Had the pleasure of presenting on IP topics for a young group of entrepreneurs in Richland County this past week, at the Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!).

YEA! is a year-long program that teaches students in grades 6-12 how to start and run their own, REAL businesses. Students brainstorm business ideas, decide if they want to work by themselves or as a team, write a business plan, pitch their plan to investors for funding, and actually launch their own business or social movement. All of the learning is real and experiential. Students leave the class as business owners, complete with a DBA and bank account!
