Summer is a time for kids to break out of the school year routine and try something new. You might be surpised by what kids can accomplish during their time off! Your kid could even learn what it is like to be the CEO of her own company! Yes, seriously!
GreenApple® Campus, Chicago’s leading provider of STEM and STEAM programming for children, is partnering with the Chicago Innovation Exchange (CIE) at the University of Chicago to provide a two week incubator program that helps the next generation of innovators creatively apply technology and business concepts to unlock potential opportunities. How cool is that?
In the spirit of innovation, StartUp to Achieve Kid CEOs ages 11-14 will set goals, develop their StartUp Big Idea, establish their brand, spread the word, and explore funding -- just like a real business. Kids enrolled in StartUp to Achieve will be coached by the best of the brightest entrepreneurs at the CIE at the University of Chicago who will help students to crystalize and present their ideas at the end of the two-week session.
You can still sign your child up for this amazing experience! The StartUp to Achieve Summer Incubator runs from July 27 to August 7 (2 weeks) from 9 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday at the Chicago Innovation Exchange at the University of Chicago located at 1452 E. 53rd St. in Chicago. StartUp to Achieve is for kids in grades 6 through 9 and costs $1200 for two weeks. To register, visit: http://www.greenapplecamps.com/startup-to-achieve-summer-incubator-15-uchicago-cie.
