This series is different in two big ways:
TE-Logo-3001) Each Teen Entrepreneur event consists of our Pitch Drill and Cashless Incubator games held back to back per event to help players learn in a fun environment the basics of developing a business plan, presenting it, developing product ideas, market testing those ideas, and how to trade their skills for resources with little or no money.  The Cashless Incubator game will be using headlines from the News & Record to come up with product ideas.
PP-Logo-New-3002) After completing a Teen Entrepreneur event, players have the opportunity to submit their own teen business idea to compete with seven others at our November 18th PitchPocalypse contest with $300 going to the winning startup along with great prizes for 2nd and 3rd place winners.  Details provided on the entry form available to players of our Teen Entrepreneur Events.

The PitchPocalypse will have judges from the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce, Summit Credit Union, and UNCG’s North Carolina Entrepreneurship Center for the November 18th event at the Greensboro Public Library Central BranchShift, the Nussbaum Center’s Entrepreneur Group, is helping organize each of these events.

We’re still looking for judges with business backgrounds for some of our Teen Entrepreneur events so if you’re interested, please Contact Us with which events work best for your schedule.
