During the five day academy, teams of three to four students from different schools will manufacture an original business pitch from the idea stage to a developed concept. They will participate in lectures and hands-on learning sessions along with creative problem solving tasks. On the final day, each team will present their idea to a panel of local business professionals for a chance to win cash prizes totaling $1,000! For the past five years the Teen Entrepreneur Summer Academy has built high school students into budding entrepreneurs. In order to extend the TESA opportunities to more students, the academy is offered in two different locations. Students living in the Grand Rapids metropolitan area will have the opportunity to work on the GVSU Pew Grand Rapids Campus, and have full access to all the resources the university has to offer. Students will use the campus faciltiies as they come together and learn valuable entrepreneurial skills.
