Tips on how to squeeze more profit from your lemonade stand
A summer day camp for young self-starters aims to bolster their entrepreneurial spirit.
The Stu Clark Centre for Entrepreneurship at the University of Manitoba is hosting its annual New Venture Adventure Camp for 10-12-year-olds from July 7 until July 11, 2014.
Campers will spend the week at Asper School of Business learning what it takes to be an entrepreneur. They will learn how to develop and present a business plan, and explore teamwork, basic sales techniques, marketing and break-even analysis.
The highlight of the week will be the “Vendors of New Venture Adventure” sales competition where students will sell products at the Forks Market on July 10 from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. The campers will be selling products they make while at camp, such as personalized greeting cards, jewellery and picture frames.
Editors, please note that all campers have signed photo release forms.
