THE Ultimate Teen Entrepreneur Experience!
Click here to Apply: Join an elite band of teen leaders

Overcome summer boredom

Dream. Create. Lead.

There are few endeavors that empower teens to discover their potential like pursuing an entrepreneurial project. Many of the entrepreneur course and camps out there for teens, typically end at the “pitch” stage. Our program builds a foundation for success while walking the teen through the actual process of bringing their idea to market. When they are done with this camp, they will have a product or service they can continue to market and sell. Along the way, they develop skill sets that will serve them for a lifetime – well beyond their high school years.

Beyond theory

BYTB is taught by entrepreneurs and teen coaches with years of experience. The program meets twice a week with in-person, virtual instruction, and teen mastermind groups. We focus on building the right mindset, collaboration, data analysis, research, problem solving, and strategic thinking.

Build a business:

What You Gain…

 

This isn’t just a summer camp to save them from the summer doldrums. This is an experience whose value continues to grow – well beyond the initial investment.

01.

CLARITY.

Many teens suffer from a lack of vision and purpose. We start the camp working with them to find and clarify a vision, purpose, and goals. The work they do in the first couple of sessions empowers them and provides a foundation for not only what they will accomplish in the camp, but for what lies ahead in life.

02.

COLLABORATION.

Our mastermind approach to this camp builds a foundation of collaboration among our students, serving as a base also for lifelong friendships. The student networking with peers and mentors in this program facilitates opportunities for internships, future partnerships, possible investors, help with resumes and reference letters, and employment.

03.

CULTIVATION

BYTB encourages and cultivates a new way of thinking and prepares teens for real situations in a new, global economy. In this camp, teens will build valuable business & computer skills, marketing and sales skills, and a level of personal development that isn’t part of normal education experience.
