Jay North, President of Hawksbill Trading Company talking about the Page County Young Entrepreneurs Program
2 March 2017
Young people in Luray and Page County are getting a chance to explore their entrepreneurial ambitions thanks to the Page County Young Entrepreneur Program (YEP), a new partnership between Hawksbill Trading Company, the Small Business Development Center, Page County Public Schools, Lord Fairfax Community College and members of the local business community.
The program, funded by a BEE (Building Entrepreneurial Economies) grant, is intended to educate, inspire and assist young people aged 16-25 with the tools and skills necessary to turn their passions into profits. Over a period of 10 weeks, students will work with teachers and mentors from the local business community to develop their product and service ideas into a viable business plan. Local business leaders and small business owners in the students’ fields of interest will be targeted for mentorship and internship. Participants will also be connected to professionals in accounting, marketing, law, product development and more to equip them with all the resources necessary for a successful business launch in June.
