The Young Entrepreneurs Academy, Lubbock’s prestigious pre-college entrepreneurship program, is designed to expand this unique educational philosophy to exceptional high school and middle school students. This innovative program helps students come up with an idea for a business or social movement that is aligned with their talents and interests, or assists them with fine-tuning an existing concept that they already have. With the help of entrepreneurial mentors and instructors, students develop an actual business plan, and pitch their plan to a panel of ‘investors’ for start-up funding. Academy students graduate the thirty week after school program with a fully-formed company that they own. The Texas Tech Innovation Hub has proudly hosted the Lubbock Chamber Young Entrepreneurs Academy class.
We invite you to encourage the young people in your life to apply to the Young Entrepreneurs Academy program for the upcoming 2017-2018 session that will start in October of 2017. Have them start by attending our Information Session.
