This program is intended for teens and adults with Down syndrome who are interested learning how to start their own micro-enterprises and implementing what they learn! The program will begin with a 6 week once a week evening class. In this Entrepreneur Bootcamp, leading business leaders and entrepreneurs in our community will review various topics ranging from brainstorming the idea, to evaluating the market, to advertising to your market, to actually producing and selling a product. To best empower the self-advocate, parents or a family member who will be working with the self-advocate in starting their business will be required to attend concurrent sessions during the 6 week bootcamp. The sidekick can be a parent, another relative, a friend, or another trusted partner that makes a commitment to complete the program with the participant.
