Clovis student entrepreneurs will have a chance to share their business plans with a panel of local investors during a special pitch day competition hosted by the Clovis Chamber of Commerce on April 8.
The event is part of the chamber’s Young Entrepreneur’s Academy (YEA!) and will be held at Clovis Community College.
Fourteen students in grades 8 through 12 will present their ideas to a panel of local business leaders, including representatives from Central Valley Community Bank, Fresno/Clovis Convention & Visitors Bureau and Sierra Specialty.
The Clovis YEA! pitch event is free and open to the public.
Participating investors will select one student business to advance to the Saunders Scholars National College Scholarship competition, where they will compete for hundreds of thousands of dollars in college scholarships, a fast-track application pass to ABC’s Shark Tank, and an all-expenses paid trip to attend America’s Small Business Summit in Washington, DC courtesy of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
