The University of Delaware is holding a conference for teens interested in innovation and entrepreneurship on April 7 at Clayton Hall on the school’s campus.
The Youth Entrepreneurship Summit features interactive workshops and breakout sessions, as well as the final round of the Diamond Challenge, an entrepreneurship competition for high school students.
This year’s keynote speakers will be Haile Thomas, founder and CEO of HAPPY Organization, and Justin Lazafan, founder of Students4Students College Advisory and Millennial Marketing Strategy. Both started companies in their teens.
The conference is supported by Capital One’s Future Edge Initiative, a five-year $150 million initiative aimed at improving skills so that people can be competitive in the digital economy.
