Young Entrepreneurs Radio

Pensacola Business Radio – YEA Radio Show with Host Thomas Booker – Ep. 2



Young Entrepreneurs Radio is hosted by Keith Hoffert and spotlights young entrepreneurs in the Pensacola area. The Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) is a ground-breaking program that takes students through the process of starting and running real businesses over the course of a full academic year. YEA! students, as a class, visit area businesses, meet successful entrepreneurs, meet with professionals (attorneys, accountants, bankers, graphic designers, web developers, insurance providers, etc.), develop a business or social movement idea and plan, and work with mentors. Students then pitch their ideas to a panel of investors made up of local business and community leaders with real dollars at stake to obtain funding, and then launch their venture. By the end of the class, students own and operate fully functioning businesses. Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) is co-sponsored by the Greater Pensacola Chamber and Global Business Solutions, Inc.
