NEO YOUTH ENTREPRENEURSHIP ECOSYSTEM COMES TOGETHER
AT ENSPIRE 2015 CONFERENCE

Nearly 200 entrepreneurship teachers, program directors, community partners and funders came together November 6-7 at University School for the inaugural Enspire conference. Great networking among attendees took place during Friday evening’s reception and throughout Saturday. Other highlights were Shark Tank’s Daymond John and his highly entertaining keynote, Kiva co-founder Jessica Jackley’s message about social entrepreneurship, the fantastic young entrepreneur panel and the culmination of Teen Tech Tank where five NEO high school students were recognized by Daymond John. A special thank you to Burton D. Morgan Foundation for support of Enspire.
