2014 #EYECON Youth Entrepreneurship Conference
The objective of #EYECON
is to encourage youth to pursue entrepreneurship as career option and employ an entrepreneurial attitude to excel and remain competitive in the workforce. #EYECON is a play on the word
“icon” and “EYE conference”. Youth will be challenged to be the image and symbol of excellence in
entrepreneurship. We will infuse Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) with entrepreneurship. The innovative workforce of the future will require our young people to demonstrate skill and expertise when pursing careers in STEM and entrepreneurship. Our aim is to make sure youth understand the importance of STEM and pursue entrepreneurial endeavors in the field.
“The #EYECON Conference was fun. The teachers / mentors were very interactive.” Old Court Middle School / 7th Grade
