West Virginia University at Parkersburg is offering a free five-day "boot camp" on youth entrepreneurship for students in grades 7-9.
The college’s Small Business Development Center is sponsoring a Youth Entrepreneurial Camp, to be held August 13-17 on campus.
The 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. sessions will include skill-building courses designed to introduce young people to various aspects of small business development and ownership.
"They will learn that owning and operating a small business is a viable career option," said Greg Hill, SBDC program director. "The information offered will help students in high school courses and also be a valuable resource in college level coursework."
Topics will include what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur; how to identify, develop and test a business concept; how to research and market a business; how to understand and keep financials in order; how to determine the feasibility of a business concept, and how and where to get funding for a business.
Training materials and lunch on each day will be provided at no cost. The workshop’s training materials will provide information to test the feasibility of a business concept and determine how to make it work.
