All entrepreneurs who participate in the program will also be invited to attend a DC-based community/neighborhood/school festival where they can sell their products or promote their business.
  • My First Business: Level 2 Young entrepreneurs who have taken My First Business: Level 1, have a business idea in mind, or are interested in business will build on basic concepts and continue to learn about kids who have started and grown successful businesses. Participants are not required to have taken Level 1 to register.

What is Junior Start-Up Lab?

Young entrepreneurs will build on an existing business idea, or select a business to work on during the first week of the session. During the program, young entrepreneurs will refine or create their brand, discover e-commerce, learn how to use free social media to gain customers, explore methods to raise money, and more.

Our instructors will guide and coach students on learning the basics of starting a business while incorporating social responsibility concepts. My First Business encourages young entrepreneurs to pursue realistic ideas, encourages leadership and teamwork while building self-confidence.
