The miniEnterprize Youth Business Conference is an annual one-day event taking place on Saturday, February 27th, 2021. 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 work together with groups of 4-5 to analyze a case study. Case studies outline a real-world business scenario where a company or organization faces challenges or opportunities for improvement. Within a limited period of time, each team 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.
The fast-paced and challenging nature of case competitions forms an excellent environment to develop critical thinking and presentation skills. Our workshops and feedback given by industry-professionals are also an excellent opportunity to improve your business literacy and to learn about various career fields.
