Discover Talent in Startups

Have you ever encountered a problem and thought, “Can I create something to solve this?” If yes, then you have entrepreneurial talent. The “Talent in Startups” summer camp offers a crash course in entrepreneurship. Open to youth in 9-12th grades, campers will be mentored by local Lincoln entrepreneurs throughout the week, and they will work together to develop a business plan. The week will culminate with a “Shark Tank” style business pitch where students will present their final product or service for a panel of professional judges.
