The virtual Teen Entrepreneurship Challenge is an engaging, six-week program designed to teach teenagers the skills and mindset needed to transform ideas into action.
Participants will explore their passions and identify problems, discover personal strengths and limitations, develop business ideas, and learn how to articulate and act on them.
The challenge concludes with a Shark Tank-style pitch competition, where students present their ideas to a panel of judges. The top prize of $1,000 will be awarded to the student or team that finishes in first place. The student or team that finishes second will earn a $500 prize.
Open to rising high school sophomores, juniors and seniors.
