Young Entrepreneurs Business Week is designed to help students excel in the classroom. If your high school offers business courses or entrepreneurship clubs, YEBW is a complimentary program that expands upon in-school instruction. If your school doesn't, YEBW is the perfect supplement...


At our immersive, week-long summer program, students learn about business through hands-on curriculum, activities and competitions. At the first-year program Business Week, students gain experience running mock companies, developing business concepts and presenting to professionals in the business community.


Whether they’re new to business or more experienced, YEBW is a great opportunity for students who are:

  • Ambitious and eager to learn

  • Seeking stronger leadership or communication skills

  • Looking for professional connections, mentors and new friends

  • Unsure about what they want to do after high school
