Kansas Youth Virtual Entrepreneurship Challenge
The Kansas Youth Virtual Entrepreneurship Challenge will kick off on April 27th and have youth submit a 3-5 minute video pitch about their business idea. It can be as simple as finding a household item and creating a new product out of it or solve a problem with it, and submitting a short video. Or, students that competed in their local YEC event this year can submit a video pitch about that same business idea. Moonbase Labs is onboard and we co-crafted this event so that it lets us get a 2nd beta of VentureDash as well.
