Anchorage Chamber Launching New Entrepreneur Program

Announcing the Young Entrepreneurs Academy!

 

The Young Entrepreneurs Academy has come to Anchorage! 

 

We are honored to be partnering with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in bringing this nationally successful program to our area. There are numerous ways for our local business leaders to get involved in this youth education program, but first here's a brief description of what YEA! is:

The Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) is a groundbreaking and exciting year long 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. Complete with dynamic guest speakers from the local business community and exciting behind-the-scenes trips to local companies, the fun, projects-based YEA! approach empowers students to take charge of their futures in a profound way.

We are more than excited to revive the spirit of entrepreneurship in our city's young students! Classes begin in the fall. For more information on the YEA! program and how you can get involved, contact Magen James at events@anchoragechamber.org or (907)677-7111.
