The Longview Chamber of Commerce and Pine Tree ISD have joined forces to bring the Young Entrepreneur Academy (YEA!) into the classroom of high school students.
With the collaboration of the two entities, 21 students have the opportunity to participate in the YEA! program. As students in the academy, each has an opportunity to fine tune business ideas, hear from successful local entrepreneurs, visit local businesses on exciting fieldtrips, develop a business plan and pitch to a panel of “investors” for real funding.
