$1,000 Start-Ups

Our Founder/Director, Leah Ward Lee once again participated in the The Nassau County School District 8-day Entrepreneurship Summer Camp at the FSCJ Yulee Campus this year.

The program guides middle and high school students from conception and research through budget and marketing to presentation of their small business in a mock Small Business Fair.

We are inspired and encouraged at the creativity, ingenuity, and effort these young entrepreneurs demonstrated. We see a great capacity for their future as entrepreneurs!

The students were featured in this article in the Nassau County Record, where you can read more about the students and the businesses they created during the camp.
