This year, CBRbiz teamed up with some of our partners and community leaders to host the first-ever Charlotte Student Entrepreneur Summit! The Summit aimed to connect high school students with the people – and inspiration – they need to start their own businesses.
During the event, successful entrepreneurs shared stories and words of advice with the students. They also reminded them of how important their fresh perspectives are to our community. Chris McElroy, Founder of AvidXchange says it best. Watch why he says these future leaders are vital to ensuring our city continues to thrive.
Through mock interviews, breakout sessions and keynote speakers, students learned from entrepreneurs and local business owners what opportunities were available to them as an entrepreneur. Thanks to our community partners including the Latin American Chamber of Commerce, the Plaza Midwood Merchant’s Association, the Business Advisory Committee and Charlotte Business Inclusion, for helping these students better understand the resources available to support their dreams.
