WNC Student Pitch Presentations This Week!

WNC Students to Pitch Business Plans at Adams Hub

“Many of our students haven’t worked with real professionals,” Whitcomb said. “It puts them in real settings and helps students start their own businesses. They need to be where the business is; you can’t just teach this in the classroom.”

Students are preparing marketing plans for businesses such as snow removal, home care, sports-related activities, animal shelters, horseback riding, and more. Students will present their marketing ideas to Rob Griffin, executive director of Adams Hub; Jeff Glass, director of New Entrepreneurs Network; and Miya MacKenzie, Hop & Mae Adams chief officer.

Start-Up: 5 Key Ways to Succeed as a Young Entrepreneur | Carson City Nevada News – Carson Now

Every year it seems more and more people are looking into starting their own ventures, escaping from the corporate mindset and driving themselves to do more, be more—and let’s not forget—earn more. These pioneers come from all walks of life, but the category that seems to be on the rise, and the one that I fall under, is that of the millennial entrepreneur.

The fierce competition to get into large corporate firms and industry giants is pushing young men and women to get creative and think outside the box to make a living. And they’re making a killing of it. “This group is poised to be the highest density of entrepreneurs in history,” according to Jeff Glass, director of the New Entrepreneurs Network, a youth-based program that teaches high school students in Carson how to think like an entrepreneur.
