2013 Young Entrepreneur Expo
Get a KICK out of Entrepreneurship!
The Young Entrepreneur Expo (YE2) is an event for young people under the age of 21 (and their parents) who already have a business or who are thinking about starting a business. The cost to attend is just $15 for the whole family, and that includes a light dinner.
Young entrepreneurs will have an opportunity to set up a booth at our event, much like what they would do at a craft show or trade show. These booths will be evaluated by judges who will provide constructive feedback and award prizes. Participants each year tell us that this is their favorite part of YE2.
Our program for the evening will include an interactive business plan building activity with volunteer business professionals, a workshop by Amber Ritter (owner of Computer iGeeks) highlighting the best business apps for iPhone/iPad, and our featured speaker, Kyle Eastham.
