InciteYouth: Ohio's Youth Entrepreneur Accelerator. What exactly does that mean? A youth entrepreneur accelerator is a program or organization that intends to encourage and support youth entrepreneurs. Places all over the world have figured out the simple truth that our youth is our future. The best and brightest ideas are coming from best and brightest of the younger generations, so why wait till they graduate college to give them the opportunities to pursue their ideas. It was with this thought that the first youth entrepreneur programs were formulated and run throughout many different cities. These programs educated youth on entrepreneurship and encouraged them to enter the business world. Places that were considered entrepreneur/business hotspots, such as London, Dubai, or more locally, Massachusetts, California, and Chicago, were the ones to really incorporate these programs while the rest of the world stood by admiring from a far.
It is time that we localize this programs giving everyone an opportunity to learn and grow in the business world. With numerous cities in Ohio making Forbes list of "Best Places To Start a Business", as well as Columbus, OH being named the "Future Smart City", Ohio seems like it should have been one of the places to incorporate a youth accelerator program. With this in mind we here at InciteYouth decided to solve the problem and create a youth accelerator program for all of Ohio to enjoy.
