Students are invited to attend an entrepreneurship camp June 10-14, 2019 at Hills Bank in Marion. Participating campers will learn about branding from a panel of experts, meet local entrepreneurs and take field trips to their businesses. Students will also build teams with fellow campers and work to solve a real-world problem, create a product and poster to showcase their solution to a problem, master the art of the elevator pitch, sell their products, gather real-time customer feedback, and enjoy a final graduation expo.
