I own my own graphic design business, and when I first got started people thought I was alone. That was not the case; being only a 2 month old business, I needed help. That help was my mom. Her experience being a business coach surely helped me get started and stay afloat. People should not be alone when they first start a business, and thats where the Fish Tank comes in. The Fish Tank is a teen business workshop and grant program. Over the course of 8-10 hours, students will learn the basics of writing a business plan and pitching it to business professionals. At the end of the project, five teens will be chosen to receive $100 each to help get their businesses started.
My potential partners for this project are Mountain Biz Works, Green Opportunities, and the Housing Authority.
Shovunda Harper has stated we could use the Eddington Center to house the project. (Housing Authority)
