Technology has rapidly become the global economic driver of the 21st century, and the tools to launch technology-based companies are becoming increasingly accessible. Facebook was launched from a Harvard dorm room. Apple Inc. was launched from a Palo Alto garage. It is no longer necessary to have millions of dollars of infrastructure to create a great technology company. All you need is the right mindset, a good idea, and the entrepreneurial skill-set to make it succeed. For students, being an entrepreneur can be a life-changing experience. Whether you decide to move forward starting your own business or decide to take your new-found skills elsewhere, learning the entrepreneurial skill-set will have a profound impact on your future. Today’s young entrepreneurs have the freedom to pursue their own passions in ways previous generations never thought would be possible. Support networks around the globe offer resources and opportunities to help kick-start innovative businesses, and Duke University’s Tech Entrepreneur Summer Academy provides high school students with a unique launch-pad into this community of young change-makers. Through the Technology Entrepreneur Academy you will learn the critical business, marketing, and communication skills that are necessary to create a successful entrepreneurial venture. In addition, you will complete your own technology-based business project to test your skills in a hands-on “pitch your idea” competition. You will learn how to identify the challenges, understand the marketplace, and develop the skills needed to turn an innovative technology idea into a global brand, but what you do with those skills will be up to you. Will you make the commitment to becoming the next great young entrepreneur? The Technology Entrepreneur Academy will put you on the path, but the desire and drive to change the world must be your own.
