A Residence Camp on the Campus of UAH

July 13-18, 2014

The UAH College of Business Administration and Junior Achievement of North Alabama are joining together to offer an Experience Entrepreneurship! Camp July 13-18, 2014.  This camp is a six day intensive experience designed for high school students who are considering careers in entrepreneurship and new business ventures.   We want students to leave with an understanding of just how fun and challenging entrepreneurship can be!

Students will be exposed to all aspects of planning and launching an entrepreneurial venture, including  recognizing opportunities, understanding customers and competition,  determining how much money is needed to start and grow a business, building the start-up team – and other topics.  Camp participants will work in teams, planning the launch of a new product, all under the guidance of successful community entrepreneurs, leading faculty, and UAH Entrepreneurship Club student members.  The week will conclude with a business plan presentation with prizes and awards for the winning team.
