SCORE CDC runs a workshop for young entrepreneurs aged 10-17 and their guardians to help them learn the fundamentals of running a business.
— Rebecca Hutchinson, Executive Director of SCORE CDC
MEMPHIS, TN, USA, November 14, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — SCORE The Community Development Corporation is helping young entrepreneurs gain the knowledge they need to succeed at a Young Entrepreneur Workshop on Saturday, November 19, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. This free event is open to ages 10-17 and their guardians. Experts will speak on topics such as starting a business, setting goals, e-commerce, marketing, how to guide a young entrepreneur, and more. The Young Entrepreneur Workshop will take place at the SCORE CDC office located at 571 Vance Ave. Memphis, TN 38126.
Rebecca Hutchinson is the founder and executive director of SCORE CDC, and she decided to facilitate the workshop after meeting several young people who expressed an interest in earning their own money. “It has become quite common for young people to start businesses. We want to make sure they, and their tutors, have a good foundation and the knowledge to be successful,” Hutchinson said. “It is open to young people who are thinking of starting a business and to those who already have one. We want them to know that it’s okay to dream big and that their age shouldn’t deter them.
The main speaker of the workshop will be 13 years old Kinyah bean, owner of B-Chill Lemonade. Bean started her business when she was eight years old, and her delicious lemonade can be found online and at seven outlets in and around Memphis. She even wrote a book called “Chillin’ My Way to Success”, which chronicles her journey as a young entrepreneur and encourages other young people to do the same. The workshop will also contain a youth vendor fair where those with products to sell can do so and receive expert feedback/suggestions on how best to market themselves in this context. The SCORE Young Entrepreneur Workshop is funded in part by a cooperative agreement with the US Small Business Administration.
