Teen Entrepreneurship Makeathon
Teens will have two options for participating in this remote event. If they have an existing business/startup, they can come to the event with a team or on their own and work to solve a problem their business is facing (Track 1). If they are new to entrepreneurship, we will help form teams of other like-minded entrepreneurs and provide a challenge for the team to solve (Track 2). This event is sponsored by a grant from NC IDEA and is free for students to participate. There will be cash prizes awarded to both Track 1 and Track 2 student teams who best solve their problem using a design thinking methodology, which we will explain at the kick- off of the event.
