Northern Kentucky University is working with the Governor’s School for Entrepreneurs to host the largest class of participants at the annual summer program on NKU’s campus in two separate sessions.
The first session will begin on June 11 and the second on July 9.
The Governor’s School for Entrepreneurs brings students from across Kentucky together and equips them with the tools needed for entrepreneurship. During the program, teams of high school students develop a business model, design a prototype and pitch their startup to an audience and a panel of judges.
The school teaches the opportunities, benefits, and pitfalls of taking a business concept from the idea phase to pitching it to potential investors. Over 30 Governor’s School for Entrepreneurs alums have launched their own small businesses in Kentucky.
Last year, NKU and the Governor’s School for Entrepreneurs agreed to a deal that allows NKU to host the three-week residential program on the Highland Heights campus through 2026.
