Student Workshops

Designed with the students in mind. Students can attend any and all workshops as many times as they would like, to gain an understanding of the topics presented. The program is broken down into the 7 sections required of a business plan & a "bonus" workshop on professionalism.

 

Knowledge > Mentorship > Entrepreneur Readiness

 

Students that have attended all workshops & have been actively working with their mentor will be able to compete in BENT's "Shark Tank" style contest, where the objective is to win business start-up money for their businesses.

 

Workshops will be hosted from October -May, twice a month after-school. Half-day workshops will be hosted monthly, with a range of 3-5 different speakers/entrepreneurs, covering one topic.
