Develop an Entrepreneur Mindset

The Genesee Intermediate School District is hosting a new event this year as part of the Youth Entrepreneurship (YE) Program. The Ideation Crash Course event will be held on December 7, 2023 from 9:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at the Genesee Career Institute, 5081 Torrey Rd, Flint.

Five YE students from each of the 24 participating school districts will have the opportunity to hear from and meet business industry experts and other like-minded students looking to generate new business ideas. Three “storm” sessions will be held to challenge the students’ imagination, creativity, innovation, and more. Students will walk away with several new business concepts to pursue.

Storm Session 1: Imagination, Creativity, Innovation, and Wacky Inventions
Storm Session 2: Marketing Challenge
Storm Session 3: RevGen Challenge

Youth Entrepreneurship is a growing initiative in Genesee County designed to spark interest and encourage entrepreneurial mindsets among students. The Charles Stewart Mott Foundation awarded GISD a grant to establish YE clubs at local high schools across the county, train participating club advisors, and support the Countywide Pitch Competition, which is the highlight of the YE Program.  

Students interested in attending the Ideation Crash Course event should contact their high school YE Coordinator. For more information about GISD YE activities and programming, email [email protected].
