This past March, 17 year old high school student, Nick D’Aloisio, sold his news aggregator app to Yahoo! for $30 million in cash and stocks. Behave LLC is launching it’s inaugural summer program, Building Young Entrepreneurs (BYE), in Historic Downtown College Park to train the next generation of entrepreneurs.
“Building Young Entrepreneurs is about encouraging your kids to discover and follow their passion,” explains Lakeitha Grey, CEO of Behave and BYE Program Administrator. “I’ve read business success stories of kids as young as nine. Anything is possible with a dream and a little direction.”
“BYE is designed to boost their self-confidence and instill work ethic that will stay with them for years to come – no matter what career path they choose to take,” states Grey.
