Event description

Description

Startup Kickoff is the Greater Foundation's primary initiative to make first contact with students, schools, and educational organizations looking for a unique approach to STEM, entrepreneurship, and leadership education.

Through hands-on challenges and the opportunity to invent, refine, and pitch their own ideas to local business leaders, Startup Kickoff is catalyst for anyone curious about starting their own journey into tech entrepreneurship.

The 5-hour youth entrepreneurship and technology experience requires a collective effort from several contributors, with the Foundation serving as the intermediary to facilitate their engagement. Only 50 youth will be admitted, so apply early!
