Youth Entrepreneurship


A massive percentage of would-be entrepreneurs in the United States are between the ages of 18 and 34! A recent poll found that 68.6 percent of the teenagers interviewed wanted to become entrepreneurs, even though they knew that it would not be an easy path. In spite of this overwhelming interest, however, youth rarely receive any information about entrepreneurship as a career option. The youth of today are daring, risk takers, well-traveled subject experts and have a whole rounded feel of the world, its cultures and opportunities. TiECon Detroit Youth panel provides a forum for all entrepreneurial thinkers to immerse themselves in real life learning experiences where they can take risks, manage the results, and learn from the outcomes. Do not miss the fascinating line-up!
