YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS' STARTUP CAMP
"YEStartup Camp" guides high school students (sophomores, juniors, and seniors as of fall 2013) through the startup process. Camp participants will learn business skills and then apply those same skills immediately through launching a business. Participants will be taught through seminars, AWESOME team building activities, and mentoring from successful entrepreneurs and experienced educators. Participants may also receive three hours of university credit through UVU.
Participants will have nine intense days to build a viable business using the skills they learn along the way. On the final night of the camp, at the Awards Banquet, these young entrepreneur teams will present their business ideas to a panel of judges and potential investors. Throughout the camp, participants will be earning 'Entre-Bucks' that can be spent during the concluding event, the 'Entre-Bucks Auction.'
Seriously, this camp is an incredible investment for only $149...and that includes instruction, learning experiences, activities, breakfasts and lunches, books, tee-shirts, and much, much more!
Space is limited to the first 40 participants. Register today!
See you there!

The Entrepreneurship Institute provides rigorous academic courses, along with lecture series, business competitions, workshops, conferences and other events designed to cultivate the entrepreneurial mindset of students across the UVU campus. We aim for student mastery in both management and technical skills.

We support clubs, collaborative peer-to-peer communities, and cross-functional startup teams across the UVU campus, and connect student entrepreneurs with off-campus networking associations. The Entrepreneurship Institute encourages students to assume personal responsibility with a focus on self-determination, commitment, and resiliency.
We promote achievement through precision execution and celebrate milestone accomplishments.
