Entrepreneurs aren't just born.
Experiential Entrepreneurship is a summer program designed for future entrepreneurs who want to change the world with their ideas. In this program, students learn to be an entrepreneur by being an entrepreneur. They will form teams and build a startup from an idea to a pitch in front of a panel of entrepreneurs. Along the way, they will have access to industry professionals who will provide guidance on topics such as finding and growing an audience, business planning, product development, negotiation, pitch presentations, and more. Students will also visit start-up businesses and have other field trips to bring what they are learning to life. This opportunity to go from an idea to a pitch for high school students is a one of a kind experience.

Learn to think and do like an entrepreneur by practicing skills like empathy, identifying your passions, and failing and trying again.
