Entrepreneurial Experience

Summer 2021

The Entrepreneurial Experience is a unique opportunity for motivated high school students in grades 9 -12, interested in becoming an entrepreneur. The Entrepreneurial Experience is an 8 week program consisting of several components that include launching your creative skills and navigating business requirements.

Each student will work as a part of a team and pitch their business plan on the final day. The top team members will each receive a $1000 scholarship to attend Iowa Lakes Community College or the college of their choice upon high school graduation.

Students will complete all aspects of a business plan and meet with Professional Advisors to learn more about what it takes to prepare to launch a business or take your business to the next level.

Most of the coursework can be completed online through Microsoft Teams, with discussions hosted on Wednesdays from noon – 1 PM. You also have the option to attend in-person on the Algona Campus to meet with the Professional Advisor.

The Entrepreneurial Experience is FREE to participants. Pre-registration is required. Registrations are due May 7, 2021.
