Young Entrepreneurs Academy! 2017-18 Class


The Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) is a program for middle and high school students interested in the area of entrepreneurship. YEA! is an interactive program that brings in professionals from the community to train and mentor the students in all facets of what it takes to start and run a successful business. The program is offered as an after-school club, meeting one day per week for three hours at Mercer University's Innovation Center. There are a total of 30 “classes,” beginning in October 2017 and ending in May 2018. The student participants will each present their business plan to an actual investor panel (similar to “Shark Tank”) and will be awarded funds to further their product or service. The panel will also select one business to move on to compete in a regional competition. YEA! students discover within themselves confidence, optimism and capability they never knew they had. Your support will help with all aspects of making YEA! possible in Central Georgia.
