"Your business and beyond..."

CEI's annual Ready Set Launch! summer entrepreneurial experience brings together high school students from all over the Valley to learn about entrepreneurship as a viable career option. From conception to pitch, students take a hands-on approach to developing a business over the course of a week, which includes completing a lean canvas business model, developing a marketing strategy, and even 3D printing functional prototypes! The culmination of the week arrives when they pitch their company in front of family and friends as well as a panel of judges who award prizes to the team with the best overall idea and presentation.

Please note: We will accept only the first (12) students who apply. All remaining applicants will be put on a waiting list.
