Calling All Young Entrepreneurs
Do you have a big idea? Have you always wanted to start your own business? Do you have an invention or project that you want to take to the next level? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should apply for the Young Entrepreneurs Academy, or YEA! YEA will be offered beginning in November after school at USC Aiken, and will take you through the process of brainstorming a business idea, writing a business plan, pitching your plan to investors (think Shark Tank meets American Idol meets the Apprentice), obtaining funding and launching a REAL business. Start as a student, and finish as the CEO of your own company! There will be an information session on Tuesday, September 1st from 6-7 p.m. at the Aiken Chamber of Commerce. Applications can be found in the guidance office, or at www.aikenchamber.net.
