Institute for Enterprise teams up with Nassau County Schools, NCEDB, and Local Business Leaders to Launch Entrepreneurship Program
Nassau County 11th and 12th grade students that aspire to own or lead a business will have a new program opportunity this year. The Institute for Enterprise’s Entrepreneurship program will be based out of the Lewis “Red” Bean Nassau Technical Career Center (NTCC) and will offer students a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get behind the scenes exposure to all types of businesses while learning from local CEOs and business owners.
While students will earn high school credits, the classes aren’t your everyday high school courses. Many classes will be held at business locations throughout the county and several topics will be covered by guest lecturers. All students will develop an individual business plan and the group will also operate a class business. The culmination of the program will consist of a trade show to highlight student businesses as well as the opportunity for students to pitch their businesses to a panel of local investors in a format resembling TV’s Shark Tank™.
Space in the program is limited, so interested student should contact Nassau County’s Career Education Director, Brent Lemond, at 904 548-4474, or message the department through the Nassau Career Ed Facebook page.
