Think Like an Entrepreneur: Free summer academy helps high schoolers learn to turn their ideas into businesses

Applications are being accepted through Monday, June 3, for Rowan University’s third annual Think Like an Entrepreneur Summer Academy for high school students.

During the non-residential academy presented by the Rohrer College of Business, rising high school juniors and seniors will spend eight days at Rowan learning how to conceive, develop and prototype their ideas. Students will work alongside faculty and student leaders to learn the basics of transforming an idea into a feasible, viable business.

Students completing the academy will earn three college credits, which can be used at Rowan or transferred to another university.

The academy runs Monday-Thursday, July 8-11 and 15-18 from 9 a.m.-2:30 p.m. each day in Business Hall in Glassboro. It is presented by the Rowan Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and sponsored by the TD Bank Charitable Foundation.
