Thank you Union County foundation for your support of the Young Entrepreneurs Academy.

ARE YOU A SCOUT?
5 CEO's in a room.
Students and guests gathered to take in life lessons from local CEO's.
The CEO's told their stories of success and failures to hopefully guide those venturing into entrepreneurialism. Not only were these students there to listen they were also given the opportunity to ask questions.
Student Questions included:
What high school class most helped to prepare you for entrepreneurialism?
How do you keep your business from getting stale?
