CEO is dedicated to educating and inspiring our island youth to flex their entrepreneurial muscles and pursue their passions; and with that goal in mind, we are pleased to announce our first youth education initiative.
C.E.O. Lemonade Day
We are proud to present our first annual CEO Lemonade Day! On Saturday, August 29th we will have 20 lemonade stands located across the Island, and the young CEOs that register to run these stands will have the opportunity to learn valuable entrepreneurial lessons and start up skills. They will be presented with a start-up kit and have the opportunity to develop a business plan, apply for a business loan, secure a location and inventory, market, analyze competition, and delve into hands on operations. All within the context of non-profit fundraising and some friendly competition!
We are grateful to Edgartown National Bank for partnering with us and assisting in the business loan role-play process.
There will be some fun prizes and incentives and a pizza party to celebrate everyone's success at the end of the day!
Calling All Future CEOs Ages K 8th Grade
