Be Entrepreneurial

Our Vision

Our vision is to build a community of young entrepreneurs that actively contribute to the economic and business development of our community. To meet this goal, we deliver a program that helps students leverage their gifts/talents/skills, funnel their entrepreneurial passions, and gain the skills and confidence to positively impact their community. We provide a program that values, supports, and embraces diversity while simultaneously creates an inclusive and equitable working environment. The mission of the Be Entrepreneurial program is to help students recognize and develop characteristics and practices of successful entrepreneurship.
