The Cullman Area Chamber of Commerce is offering a fantastic opportunity!  The Young Entrepreneurs Academy is taking student applications through May 22nd.  (See the attached application for more details.)

YEA! guides students through the process of starting and running a legitimate business or social movement over the course of a full academic year. YEA! has graduated over 4,000 students since 2004, who have started over 3,000 businesses and social movements! Kids start as students and graduate as CEOs!


Over the course of the program students:

  • Brainstorm business ideas
  • Write a business plan
  • Interact with business professionals
  • Pitch their business plan to potential “investors” (think Shark Tank meets the Apprentice meets American Idol.)
  • Legally register their businesses
  • Participate in a Trade Show
  • Actually launch their own businesses or social movements
