  1. Youth Entrepreneur Shark Tank - Saturdays, Feb. 4, 11 and 25

Youth Entrepreneur Shark Tank

Calling all entrepreneurs! This SpIn club is looking for youth in 3rd-12th grades. Do you make something that you want to sell? A great business idea? This class is for you!

We will cover researching, marketing, branding and your sales pitch. Interested youth should have a business idea they would like to start on or already in operation.

We have pulled together an impressive group of mentors from our community, including representatives from:

  • 4-H
  • Chesterfield County Cooperative Extension
  • Chesterfield County Farmers Market
  • Chesterfield County Public Library

Class will culminate in a 4-H version of Shark Tank where the top three presenters will earn start-up capital to fold into their business, plus preferential consideration as a youth vendor with the Chesterfield County Farmers Market.

All participants will be given the opportunity to apply as a youth vendor at the Chesterfield County Farmers Market, if interested. Youth must be creative and willing to learn.
