The miniEnterprize Youth Business Conference is an annual one-day event taking place on Saturday, February 22nd, 2020. With a primary focus on business and entrepreneurship, miniEnterprize aims to encourage youth to take initiative and think outside the box.
Our conference is designed to help teens succeed in the business world by providing them with an opportunity to learn from and interact with experienced professionals. As we wish to help teens further develop their business and entrepreneurship skills, delegates participate in hands-on workshops and listen to seasoned presenters before competing in a case competition based on problems they may encounter in the real world. Teams will have the chance to assess a company through the process of identifying problematic setbacks and formulating an inventive yet feasible solution, then presenting these ideas to a professional judging panel. From this experience, miniEnterprize hopes to foster leaders in marketing, finance, and management.
The winning team of miniEnterprize will receive a $1,000 grant to fund their business idea.
The miniEnterprize Executive Team encourages students to take advantage of what this unique conference has to offer and is confident that all participants will leave with a better understanding of the business community, new problem solving skills, and improved entrepreneurship skills.
WHAT IS A CASE COMPETITION?
At business conferences, students, or delegates, work together with members on their team to participate in a case competition. A case competition is an event where teams receive a case study which is based on problems they could encounter in the real world. For a limited period of time, the teams must identify the most prominent issues facing the company and develop a recommendation strategy to address these key issues. Once the time is up, the team must then skillfully present their idea to a professional judging panel and be prepared to answer any questions the judges might have.
