A distinguished panel of young business leaders will share their personal stories, business tips and lessons learned during an interactive session. Speakers include Mason Fuller (SBA Young Entrepreneur of the Year) and Jenna Haener (local entrepreneur and BSU MBA alum). With youth unemployment twice the national average in many communities, SBA recognizes a need to promote and better support the efforts of young people looking to create jobs for themselves and others. Young entrepreneurs are a dynamic resource for our national recovery and growth.
