Teen Entrepreneurship Symposium
Independent Youth's Teen Entrepreneurship Symposium educates teens on entrepreneurship through presentations by reputable, successful and engaging teen entrepreneurs. These teen entrepreneurs are flown in from across the country to hold break-out sessions on a specific area of entrepreneurship. During this time the teens provide student participants with hands-on activities & informational materials that inspire & encourage them to consider entrepreneurship as an option now & in the future.
Through this Symposium, IY is able to provide inspiration to high school business students, while providing them with the resources and knowledge to become successful. Young entrepreneurs benefit from this interactive group learning style, enabling them to be better prepared for any future endeavors. In addition, this Symposium created an opportunity for established teen entrepreneurs from around the country to connect with each other, expanding upon their own network.
The Teen Entrepreneurship Symposium consists of:
• A keynote speaker that is a founder/executive of a top National organization.
• Interactive break-out sessions presented by teen entrepreneurs focused on specific facets of entrepreneurship.
• A formal networking lunch for the participants.
• A teen panel discussion led by the teen entrepreneurs.
