YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS ACADEMY
The Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) teaches middle and high school go-getters how to start and run their own, REAL businesses. The central Ohio chapter of YEA! is based at The Point at Otterbein, a one-stop shop for learning, creating, and innovation. It’s the perfect location for our YEA! Columbus program!

Founded in 2004 at the University of Rochester with support from the Kauffman Foundation, YEA! has helped more than 4,000 students nationwide launch over 3,000 businesses and social movements. This past year, Westerville area high school student Allison Ricker won our local competition and traveled to the national competition with her invention, Decleated.
