Spurring innovation among younger entrepreneurs

2 Jan 2017

Colleges and universities have long included entrepreneurial academic programs that focus on teaching business skills and inspiring start-ups. But a recent article by Entrepreneur magazine suggests that programs geared towards junior high students could have an even wider impact.

Studying entrepreneurship can impart important lessons in critical thinking and creative problem solving as well as self-sufficiency. The Kansas Entrepreneurship Challenge gives high school and college students from Kansas real-world experience in the process of putting together a business proposal.

The Challenge also rewards the best business ideas. This year, more than $10,000 was awarded to student entrepreneurs. Learn more about this innovative program. https://cba.k-state.edu/departments-initiatives/center-advancement-entrepreneurship/ks-entrepreneurship-challenge.html
