Operation HOPE is Giving Aspiring Youth Entrepreneurs the Chance to Shine

By Natasha L. Foreman

If you live in or will be in the Atlanta area Wednesday, January 16th then there’s only ONE place that you need to be from 9:30am to 11:30am, and that’s cheering on and supporting aspiring youth entrepreneurs at Operation HOPE’s HOPE Business In A Box (HBIAB) pitch competition at Jean Childs Young Middle School.

There are 29 teams competing, (consisting of 6th and 7th graders) for the HBIAB Entrepreneurship Grant (from $50 to $500 each), 6 weekly sessions with a Business Role Model, a savings account, and access to additional resources that will help them develop a mini business plan and launch their businesses.

Come out and lend your support to these young entrepreneurs. Be sure to share these details with your friends, family, associates, and colleagues. Tweet it, post it, and blog it!
