Overview

Entrepreneurship is the driving force behind economic progress and social prosperity. Why? Because, in addition to creating wealth, they also create jobs and help to improve the quality of life for others. 

During this 3-day seminar at Chapman University (for ages 14-17), you'll explore economic thinking, world issues, and the entrepreneurial mindset as you discover why entrepreneurs change the world. At the seminar you will...

  • Gain critical thinking and practical skills by tackling fun activities like Shark Tank and the Trading Game
  • Interact with knowledgeable speakers and discuss ideas during open discussion sessions
  • Connect with top students who are just as curious and driven to get ahead
  • Have a memorable experience that you can add to your resume or college applications

We have awesome news! Until March 31st you can attend for just $79 (half off the regular price).
