First YEA! Investor Panel Shark Tank Taking Place in March

First YEA! Investor Panel Shark Tank Taking Place in March
Everyone is invited to attend and support the event of the year for the inaugural Fargo Moorhead Young Entrepreneurs Academy. A panel of 12 investors from local businesses will hear pitches from the remarkable local high school and middle school students in a competition based on ABC's "Shark Tank" series.

The aspiring CEOs will be thrown into the "Shark Tank," where they will vie for real funding from the panel of local investors. One company will be chosen to move on to the semi-finals. Winners of the semi-finals will be flown to Washington, D.C., to compete in the national finals at the opening event of America’s Small Business Summit, hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce with support from Sam's Club. These young entrepreneurs will compete to win college scholarships ranging from $25,000 to $50,000 and a variety of business startup packages.

YEA! is an intensive entrepreneurship training where 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 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.

The enthusiasm and success of the students are empowering for the entire community. YEA! strengthens the community, and the community strengthens YEA!
