East Carolina University’s College of Business (COB) and its Miller School of Entrepreneurship will host Pitt County high school students during the inaugural Summer Innovation Academy.
The weeklong event, supported by COB faculty, Miller School partners and ECU students, is designed to teach high school students the basics of entrepreneurship and how to launch a business idea. Highlights of the academy include learning lean launch startup methodology, one-on-one feedback from local entrepreneurs and investors, and exploring different resources within the ECU entrepreneurial ecosystem.
The academy will close with a tradeshow-style event June 22 where student teams can present their ideas to parents and faculty.
