The Falls School of Business in conjunction with Anderson University is offering its second annual Entrepreneurship Business Camp this summer for high school juniors and seniors. Students and professors from Anderson University will engage high school students with hands-on entrepreneurship projects while giving the attendees the opportunity to win money with their ideas.
After the success of last year’s one camp, the FSB made plans to offer two separate camps this year. The first runs from June 20-22 and the second from June 23-25. The concept for each camp follows the model of last year: groups of high school students from area schools will be placed into teams with an AU student leader. The teams will compete in a number of entrepreneurship-based challenges for cash prizes. Also, the students will visit the workplaces of some of Anderson area's exciting entrepreneurs to see them in action. The cost of each camp is $59, and the average prize money per attendee is $100.
Graham Brown, an Anderson University senior majoring in Business Management, served as a team leader at last year's camp and said he's excited about being involved again. "I loved watching the students get excited about business and entrepreneurship. The camp gave them a chance to start turning ideas into reality and get inspired about their future." Last year’s camp involved campers filming a commercial for an actual product, called “No Dirty Talk” that was pitched to investors.
