Summer Entrepreneurship Camp!
Submitted on Mon, March 25, 2013
SuperBizCamp immerses aspiring teen entrepreneurs into a highly collaborative mini-MBA style course that was developed in partnership with Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE). Over eight days students construct their own unique business plans—with the exciting opportunity to win seed capital to start their own business. Our teen entrepreneurs acquire a background of sound business principles and develop an entrepreneurial mindset. Innovation, creative thinking, and collaboration are celebrated, sparking students’ imaginations and challenging them to develop fresh ideas.
In addition, essential learning and life skills—including critical thinking, communication, relationship-building, and stress management—help students overcome obstacles and achieve success throughout their careers. At SuperBizCamp students experience real-world business activities through case studies, buying and selling events, role-playing sales, and sessions with entrepreneurial experts. In addition, they have the opportunity to participate in a buying event at a local supplier and prepare a product to sell at a local venue.
The SuperBizCamp curriculum covers a range of topics including:
· Return on investment
· Business plan writing
· Opportunity recognition
· Cash flow
· Stress management
· Visual mapping tools
· Learning and leadership style
The 2013 Camp will be at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA from July 28-August 4.
