The 2014 Summer Company program has officially launched! Student entrepreneurs receive start-up money to kick-off a new summer business and advice and mentorship from local business leaders to help get the business up and running. This is a great opportunity for students to explore self-employment, develop their entrepreneurial skills and make money at the same time. Check out this year’s students below and help support local youth entrepreneurs.
