EVENT OVERVIEW

The Wynwood Yard’s entrepreneurial spirit soars this March as it spotlights Miami’s youngest and brightest minds at its inspiring Young Entrepreneurs Day, with the generous support of presenting sponsor, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

Kids and teens will show us their business chops, share their ideas and motivate our community with their infectious determination, while guests kick-start some of your own ideas through demos, workshops, readings, info booths and activities.

Peruse the Wynwood Yard grounds, enjoy live music throughout the afternoon from Live! Modern Music and Young Musicians Unite, fuel up with eats from the food concepts at The Yard and sip on soft drinks, lemonade or libations from The Bar at The Yard.

Visit pop-up booths by Huizenga Business Innovation Academy at Nova Southeastern University, learn about finance and money management in an informative and engaging workshop, get artsty in a guided still life drawing lesson using chalk pastels with McKenzie Construction design officer, Jose Ortez and show off your modeling chops at New Tropic's activity and photo booth.
