Young Entrepreneurs

Young Entrepreneurs

I had the great honor today to meet with two students at Newton High School’s YEK (Young Entrepreneurs of Kansas) class. Part of this 2-semester program joins experienced business people with students for one-on-one business plan advising. Advisors spend three 2-hour sessions over something like 6 weeks working with these talented students to craft their business plans.

This is one of my favorite times of the year because it’s the time that Wichita movie theaters are most likely to be showing the non-blockbuster films that the locals don’t support enough to warrant their presence in Wichita theaters the rest of the year. This is also the time of the year that local professional organizations evaluate and recognize outstanding work that has been created over the course of the past year.
