Young Entrepreneurs Academy
The Young Entrepreneurs Academy is a ground breaking, yearlong class that transforms middle and high school students into real, confident entrepreneurs. Throughout the class, students develop business ideas, write business plans, conduct market research, pitch their plans to a panel of investors, and actually launch and run their own real, legal, fully formed companies and social movements. Founded in 2004 at the University of Rochester with support from the Kauffman Foundation, the Young Entrepreneurs Academy today serves hundreds of students in communities across America.
Methodist University and the Center for Entrepreneurship, in partnership with Cumberland County Schools and the Fayetteville Regional Chamber of Commerce, have successfully completed one year of hosting Fayetteville's first YEA class. Interested parties should contact Hanah Ehrenreich (pictured at right) at the Fayetteville Regional Chamber by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling her at (315) 481-1462.
