Young Entrepreneurs: From Dreaming to Doing

Group Of Teenage Students Collaborating On Project In Classroom


Let’s face it, some of the most innovative minds in the world are 2e. Twice-exceptional kiddos often have magnificent passions and high-intelligence.

This course is structured to enable your bright child to delve deeply into his/her passion and equip them with the tools to create actual plans to develop a product or service and bring it to market.

Entrepreneurship is simply the vehicle through which your child can storyboard their dreams. This course is about so much more than building a business, it's about goal-setting, planning, self-reflection, effective communication, marketing, analysis, etc. These are forever and always skills!

Toward the end of our session together, students will present their products and services in a Shark-Tank-styled exhibition.
