The Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce BEACON at Salisbury University as an Investor Panel Sponsor for the Young Entrepreneurs Academy. Their support and donations allow them an exclusive judging seat when students present their ideas at the YEA! Investor Panel event in Spring 2016. BEACON donated laptops, facilities, food and refreshments and additional event resources needed for the program. YEA! is an innovative, afterschool program that transforms local middle and high school students into real entrepreneurial successes.
The YEA! program hosted by the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce takes students between the ages of 11 and 18 through the process of starting and launching a real business or social movement over the course of an academic year. By the end of the class, students own and operate fully-formed and functioning businesses, which may be carried on after their graduation from the program. The YEA! program is hosted at the BEACON suite at Salisbury University in the Franklin P. Perdue School of Business. The 2015-2016 class will be the 1st YEA! class on the Eastern Shore.
