Partnership is Key

Youth Entrepreneurs Kansas is a nonprofit 501c(3) organization, founded by the Koch Foundation, that teaches business and entrepreneurial education. They believe teaching entrepreneurship better prepares students for success in business and other future career and education endeavors.

Youth Entrepreneurs students and alumni have access to exclusive summer partnership opportunities, scholarships, venture capital awards, networking events and opportunities to promote their entrepreneurial endeavors. ECBEA students will have internship opportunities as part of this program.
