About National Youth Leadership Forum: Business Innovation
Your Future in Business Starts Today
National Youth Leadership Forum: Business Innovation – 7 Days to Startup is specifically designed to provide high school students with the skills needed to lead the next innovative revolution.
At NYLF Business Innovation, you will discover your passion for entrepreneurship and innovation by competing in Envision's Entrepreneurial Challenge, an exciting startup-style simulation that takes you from ideation to product launch, and challenges you to make the critical decisions that every successful entrepreneur must make. During a day-long trip to New York City, you will participate in a business site visit and even crowd source Entrepreneurial Challenge ideas in Times Square.
Over seven transformative days, you will gain hands-on business and startup experience, participate in a professional site visit, hear from and interact with recognized business leaders and some of Yale’s business faculty, and make connections with fellow high-achieving, business-minded students from all over the country.
Most importantly, you will leave the program with a clearer vision of your future career path and how to achieve your goals. By completing NYLF Business Innovation, you are eligible for college credit from George Mason University.
Please note: We are currently evaluating all aspects of NYLF Business Innovation and may make changes to the curriculum or site visits to ensure the program meets the most up-to-date health and safety standards.
The National Association of Secondary School Principals has placed this program on the 2020-2021 NASSP List of Approved Contests, Programs, and Activities for Students.
