Join Teen Enterprise for their Virtual Young Entrepreneur Showcase, which will premiere on Tuesday, December 1 at 9am and will be available for replay following the end of the event. The Virtual Young Entrepreneur Showcase will highlight several Black American teenagers and their businesses, by giving them the platform to share information about their businesses and give viewers the opportunity to purchase items from their websites. Online viewers will also learn more about the mission of Teen Enterprise and hear stories from past and present young entrepreneurs and how Teen Enterprise has impacted not only their businesses, but their lives. Teen Enterprise is calling this event a “Friend-Raiser” in hopes that it will bring more partners from the community to assist with the growth of not only the organization, but the young entrepreneurs. Teen Enterprise is asking that you will share this event with your circle of influence, as well as join us investing in the next generation.
In previous years, the Young Entrepreneur Showcase has inspired community leaders who are concerned about the development of the next generation and inspired teens who received positive feedback from attendees, which resulted in an increase in not only their business success, but their confidence. Founder Tory Coats believes, “If we invest in our community, great things can happen. If we invest in our youth, great things can happen.”
Teen Enterprise has continued to help teens throughout Cleveland, after Founder Tory Coats won Accelerate 2018 – a civil pitch competition presented by the Cleveland Leadership Center in partnership with Citizens Bank. Accelerate acted as a catalyst for Tory Coats and he desires to create the same opportunity for the young entrepreneurs who are a part of his organization.
Teen Enterprise is asking the city of Cleveland to come take part in this virtual event that will give the young entrepreneurs increased visibility for their businesses. With the recent rise in racial injustices and the uncertainty that the global pandemic has brought, Teen Enterprise wants to show young entrepreneurs that they can pursue their dreams despite any adversity they may face. We hope you will join us.
