Youth Entrepreneurship

Opportunities for Young Entrepreneurs

Young people of today are the entrepreneurs of the future. The SBA has developed a Teen Website designed to introduce young entrepreneurs to the concept of small business ownership as a viable career choice. This innovative Website helps young people shape and implement their dreams of entrepreneurship.

The teen site features the fundamentals of starting a small business; from brainstorming to evaluating the feasibility of your idea, developing the all-important business plan, learning from successful young entrepreneurs, making sound financial decisions and utilizing various entrepreneurial development services, such as SCORE, Junior Achievement, DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America), and the National Academy Foundation.

These valuable resources provide face-to-face counseling and training for teens as well as online counseling and training in starting and growing a business. Get more information on these valuable resources by clicking the links below:
