Mill Village Farms Young Entrepreneurs Present Their Business Plans – And We Present a Big Surprise!
This summer, Mill Village Farms’ youth entrepreneurs went through a program teaching them about creating and launching a new business. Part of their assignment was to develop a formal business plan and presentation for a local “shark tank” of three entrepreneurs who would critique and guide these young adults. Our owner, Steve Frabitore, was asked to be one of the “sharks.”
The teens put together a plan for a new business venture which they hope to launch this fall. The entrepreneurs provided feedback on their plan, and the group shared lunch. AND THEN, we surprised these eight teenagers with their own laptop computers! We wanted to support their entrepreneurial spirits and their diligence and ambition so we raised money in the restaurant with our “Side of Goodness” campaign: buy an extra farm fresh side and we’ll donate $3 to Mill Village Farms.
So thank you, Greenville, for helping us make this happen.
