MI apps make splash in Mobileys, and other recent tech news
On Nov. 5, 22 young women converged on Wayne State University’s campus to take part in Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!), a 30-week program intended to take participants from novice entrepreneur to startup CEO. The middle- and high-school students will learn how to develop business ideas, write business plans, pitch investors and run their own fully formed companies. Unlike other YEA! programs across the country, this one focuses solely on female students and is sponsored in part by the Greater Detroit chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners and the Mike Ilitch School of Business.
