Trade Show 2023 Recap - They planned. They pitched. They LAUNCHED!
Today, all 26 of our young entrepreneurs launched their business endeavors. Behind each trade show booth was countless hours of planning, revising, researching and hard work. This year, we had a RECORD NUMBER of guests and a RECORD NUMBER of students that SOLD OUT their trade show inventory!! Amazing!
Some students have an exit plan for their business venture, some plan to continue to watch it grow. One thing is for sure…the lessons, connections and experiences they have gained from CEO will last them long after graduation.
Congratulations, Class of 2023! We are incredibly proud of you.
