YES-logo_redesign_draft-01The Youth Entrepreneurship Summit (YES!) is a unique one-day conference for teens centered on innovation and entrepreneurship. YES! features interactive workshops, engaging speakers, networking opportunities, and the final round of the Diamond Challenge venture concept competition for high school entrepreneurs. These activities encourage students to develop new skills while also energizing their entrepreneurial spirit, and connecting them with a community of like-minded peers.

This year’s theme is “What wakes you up?” and will focus on what makes young entrepreneurs excited about living every day and how can that be a part of their future careers. YES! is redefining success and focusing on health, happiness, and purpose, all achieved through living with passion and creativity.

4GirlsTech & MediaMercer Henderson Teens & Social Media is a startup founded by 14-year-old Mercer Henderson who launched her business to learn how apps are created, build an app that is fun for her and her friends, and most importantly, to raise money that she can then donate to social good. Mercer is now adding a social media and teen conference to her mix. Why? Because Tweens and Teens love their tech and social media but do they really know how to manage their online brand?  How do you get a million followers? How to link social experience from Musically to Snap?  Mercer and her squad are there to help. Speakers include Asia Money Ray, Tina Sharkey, John Battelle, and many more.
