Exploring Ways to Engage Young Entrepreneurs

  • Share |

Last Friday, Acting U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Regional Administrator Bridget Bean visited the Wharton Small Business Development Center (SBDC) for a facilitated discussion with young entrepreneurs and the leaders of organizations serving young entrepreneurs.

The discussion -- part of the Young Entrepreneur Series (YES) -- was organized by the Wharton SBDC and provided Ms. Bean an opportunity to learn more about the challenges facing young Pennsylvania entrepreneurs as they learn to start and grow their business.

YES is an initiative by the White House and the SBA to connect young and aspiring entrepreneurs with SBA officials, local business advisors and resources.

"In Philadelphia we are fortunate to have many successful young entrepreneurs and a vibrant community that supports and encourages young entrepreneurs," said Therese Flaherty, director of the Wharton SBDC at the University of Pennsylvania.

Since all of the Pennsylvania SBDCs are located at institutions of higher learning, many students actively participate in SBDC programs.

Each year, hundreds of these students engage in client and research-related projects for the SBDC -- learning first-hand about the challenges and opportunities that  exist for small business owners and entrepreneurs.
