Wyoming kids are not just about Wyoming’s future, we want to cultivate their abilities to solve problems today. The Wyoming Young Entrepreneur Initiative provides opportunities for young people to practice skills and to give an avenue for them to be problem solvers and innovators for Wyoming’s future. Skills such as empathy, the identification of problems, critical thinking, creativity, teamwork and prototyping are developed as a part of the practice of entrepreneurial thinking.
Community/Live Pitch Event
Students that have successfully complete all programming will participate in a live pitch night to share their ideas with the community. Small prizes will be awarded including Maker Space 307 Student Memberships.
Submit Video to Wyoming Young Entrepreneur Challenge
At the completion of the program, students will submit their videos to the statewide pitch challenge and compete with their peers across the state.
