Young Entrepreneurs Academy

The Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) is a cutting-edge program that takes students ages 11 to 18 through the process of starting and launching a real business or social movement over the course of an academic year. 

Throughout the class, students develop business ideas, write business plans, conduct market research, pitch their plans to a panel of investors and actually launch and run their own real, legal, fully-formed companies and social movements. Complete with dynamic guest speakers from the local business community and exciting behind-the-scenes trips to local companies, the fun, projects-based YEA! approach empowers students to take charge of their futures in a profound way.

YEA! Background:

Founded in 2004, at the University of Rochester, with support from the Kauffman Foundation, the Young Entrepreneurs Academy today serves thousands of students in communities across America.
