You’ll refine your presentation, then celebrate your successful launch for our “Shark Tank” competition on the last day of camp. On field trips to start-up ventures and business incubators, you’ll see how entrepreneurs are getting to do what they love while working for themselves. There’s no ceiling on this entrepreneurial journey! More info here.

Curious about Young Entrepreneur Institute’s history?

Young Entrepreneur Institute (YEI) was founded by Greg Malkin in 2005 and launched its initial activities at University School in 2006. With the generous support of University School, community foundations and organizations, Young Entrepreneur Institute expanded beyond University School in 2008 and now has partnerships with many teachers, schools and organizations throughout the region. Most importantly, Young Entrepreneur Institute provides thousands of children with access to entrepreneurial education and experience.

Our vision: At Young Entrepreneur Institute, we believe that every child should understand and experience entrepreneurship. When children learn the tangible and intangible lessons of entrepreneurship early in life, they can see how the real world works. And by experiencing these universal lessons — such as perseverance, hard work, self-confidence, financial literacy, and problem solving – students are more prepared to succeed in whatever they choose to do. Our vision is to see that these lessons are instilled in as many students as possible.
