Entrepreneurship has not been totally explored as an economic development strategy.
Schools provide an entry to create an entrepreneurial climate and our high school entrepreneurial initiative, E-Di$covery Challenge$ You! provides a way for students to learn about business while developing a product or service of their own. We train high school teachers to use the eight-session curriculum that leads students through the steps to business development. Students develop a product or service independently or as a team and sell at a school or community event.
Many students use the team approach to start their businesses to combine the strengths of each team member. Parents and community members, along with other students and staff at the school, support the sales events. All realized profits are divided among team members. Providing students with hands-on business opportunities has the potential for assisting communities with their economic development strategy.
