Entrepreneurship Summer Camp

Monday, June 11 - Thursday, June 14, 2018

Being an entrepreneur is a little bit art…and a little bit science. It is more than starting or owning a business. The traits of entrepreneurs are ones that can be helpful to individuals in any field—working for yourself or working for others. And let’s be honest, a human services professional may decide to open their own home health care company, or someone who wants to study criminal justice may launch a security firm. Knowing the business end of those endeavors will help them to avoid failure. So regardless of your college goals, join us for this summer camp to improve on your entrepreneurial characteristics.
