Emprende Amigo Youth


    • Overview

      Emprende Amigo Youth (EAY) is a bilingual, international, fully remote, youth course on the foundations of entrepreneurship. 
    • This program solves for the lack of opportunities in the region by being a launchpad for emerging entrepreneurs. A young or first-time entrepreneur needs community and mentorship to learn the ropes, to fail forward, and to feel empowered that they are supported in their endeavors. EAY helps uplift the next generation of entrepreneurs by delivering on three key offerings: an online certification, virtual pop ups, and immersive weekend programs.

    • Topics:

      1. *Entrepreneurship, startup culture and communities
        *Public speaking
        *Lean startup methodology
        *Business model generation
        *Access to capital
        *Business formation and organization
        *Marketing and online commerce.

“After EAY, I feel inspired and ready to start the next chapter in my life as an entrepreneur. I have been wanting to start my own business for years, but I haven't had the confidence to take those next steps. EAY gave me the tools that I need to take my dreams out of my head, put them down on paper, and ultimately make them a reality.”
