The 2018-2019 Program Schedule describes the specific events in the program, which includes entrepreneurial and mentoring events designed to encourage young women to stay in school, to help them see business ownership as a viable career choice, and to introduce them to a variety of industries and careers.
Students from participating schools will be encouraged to write a business plan in which they describe their future goals and why they want to become entrepreneurs. Throughout the year, the young women will attend two all-day entrepreneurial conferences, networking events, mentoring sessions at their schools, and a Business Plan training session. In the spring participants submit a business plan in a competition for college scholarships and prizes. The six winning students are awarded college scholarships totaling $20,500.
Texas A&M University San Antonio and UTSA are partnering with Entrepreneurial Connections for the 2018-2019 year. They will provide information to the teen women at the one day conference about attending the universities.
