YEA! Macon

August 07, 2017

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.

No business experience is needed-just creativity, enthusiasm, dedication and lots of effort.  The program runs from October 2017-May 2018 on Tuesdays from 4:30-7:30 at Mercer University's Innovation Center.

Scholarships for YEA! are available and the application deadline is August 31st, 2017.
