Youth Entrepreneurship

We want to train up the next generation of entrepreneurs!

We have partnered with many of the local school systems to bring the Startup Experience, a two-day entrepreneurship workshop, to the Shenandoah Valley. This program helps students get a first taste of the world of entrepreneurship.

Since it’s successful launch in 2018, we’ve been able to expand our youth entrepreneurship program offerings. Stay tuned for more details on additional Startup Experiences offered around the Shenandoah Valley as well as the launch of a youth entrepreneurship summer camp.
