YEA! Investor Panel Shark Tank

YEA! Investor Panel Shark Tank

YEA! Investor Panel Shark Tank

Over the past five months, the Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) students have developed business ideas, conducted market research, learned from guest speakers and worked with mentors to write their business plans. Now, they will have five minutes to pitch their ideas to a panel of local investors and will ask for funding to help them launch their businesses!

This competition is like watching a live taping of ABC’s Shark Tank, only the entrepreneurs are younger and the investors are familiar faces from our community. The winner of this event will advance to a regional semi-final competition in Rochester, New York, where he or she will compete for a spot in the National Saunder’s Scholars Finals, which is held in conjunction with America’s Small Business Summit in Washington, D.C.!

This event is free, but seating is limited. Register today to see the YEA! students emerge as Fargo Moorhead West Fargo’s newest and youngest entrepreneurs!

About the Program
The Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) takes middle and high school students through the process of launching their own businesses. Over the course of this 30-week program, students use a projects-based curriculum, tour local businesses to learn about different industries, conduct market research, hear from guest speakers and work with local professionals who serve as mentors as the students write their business plans. By the end of this program, YEA! students will be the CEOs of their own real businesses or social movements, all before they graduate high school!
