Young Entrepreneurs Academy to present business ideas to local leaders in April

16 students from the Young Entrepreneurs Academy will present their business plans before a panel of local leaders of the industry, as well as to the public audience on April 5 at the Helen Devitt Jones Sculpture Garden and Theater on the Texas Tech campus.

 

The YEA! event will take place from 6 to 8:30 p.m., according to Amy Marquez with the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce.

“The students will pitch their business plans to the investor panel,” she said, “along with a chance to represent their class at the YEA! Saunders Scholars Competition, a regional business pitch competition.”

Students in the program are introduced to all facets of the business world including: advertising, insurance, graphic design and web development.

“This year’s class will launch 12 businesses in the community,” said Marquez.

More than 50 local businesses involved with YEA! students collaborate with local business leaders, community leaders and educators who use their personal experiences to demonstrate how to transform ideas into tangible businesses that create economic and social value.

If any local business leaders are interested in participating or investing in the Investor Panel, or for more information about the event, contact Marquez at (806) 761-7002.
