The Taylor University chapter of Enactus will host Junior Entrepreneurs, an event that introduces middle school students to entrepreneurship, at Eastbrook High School on Tuesday, April 11, from 8:15-10:30 am.
The Taylor Enactus students will work specifically with students in Eastbrook’s 7th grade.
Enactus is a national organization that seeks to serve communities through entrepreneurial activity. The aim of the organization is for students to use business knowledge to promote sustainable growth in their communities. The student teams create and execute projects to serve that end.
Organizers say the classrooms will come up with business ideas and work to create a plan for their business in four areas: finance, marketing, supply chain, and social responsibility. The ideas will be entered into a competition judged by Tim Eckerle of the Grant County Growth Council, Cathy Kerton-Johnson of SEGway and The Bridge, Andrew Preston of the Upland Print and Stitch, and Taylor faculty member Jeff Aupperle, from which finalists and winners will be determined.
