Northwest and North Central Missouri-area high school students will have a chance to learn about entrepreneurship during a training event this Thursday in Chillicothe.
The 7th annual Youth Entrepreneurship Summit is expected to attract about 120 students from Marceline, Brookfield, Chillicothe, and Cameron according to Steve Holt, director of Northwest Missouri State University’s Small Business and Technology Development Center in Chillicothe.
“The Summit is to promote youth entrepreneurship and to showcase the capabilities of the region’s young people,” Holt said. “It will be a call to consider entrepreneurship as a career path and to consider following that career in the region. Additionally, it will encourage local communities, organizations, and businesses to get their young people involved in local problem solving.”
