“Young people are capable of doing much more today than ever in the history of mankind.” Mohammad Yunus

For the youngpreneurs among us, you’re in good company: there are many ambitious entrepreneurs just like you, who are young but feel ready to hone your business chops. According to a Gallup survey, 77% of students in grades 5-12 said they want to be their own boss, with 45% saying they wanted to start their own business. 42% even indicated a desire to invent something that changes the world. Our youth like you clearly have the interest — and potential — to build the future they want for themselves.

We’ll discuss areas like how to find your passion, how to build your personal brand, and how to apply your business idea to create meaningful change.
