    Event description

    BYCC and BOP Industries invite local students in grades 7-12 from BYCC member schools to join us for the Young Business Leaders Program's Start-Up Day on Wednesday 21st April. The Start-Up Day will be packed full of workshops and activities to get students developing their business idea like ideation, customer personas, product design, marketing, and more! Whether students are still coming up with their business idea or have already established their own business, we have a variety of activities planned to cater to students' needs. 

    The Start-Up Day will act as the launch event for the Young Business Leaders Program, providing students with the foundation they need for the 8-week workshop series on Wednesday afternoons from 3:30-5:00 (28th April - 16th June). It is expected that students who attend the Start-Up Day are available for the 8-week program. At the culmination of the 8-Week Program, students will have the capacity to promote and sell their concept via a market stall!
