See The Best Youth Entrepreneurs In Town…

Youth entrepreneurs


So we may be a bit biased, but seriously … homeschooling creates some of the best youth entrepreneurs we know. They tend to be:

  • Smart (taught at an early age to think independently)
  • Frugal (testing concepts and opportunities within limited budgets)
  • Perseverant (working odd hours and around the clock)
  • Friendly (interacting with different age ranges easily and politely)

But don’t take our word for it. Come see them for yourselves at our conference in April!

This year, we’re thrilled to host the MPE Youth Entrepreneurial Program in our vendor hall.

This section of booths in the vendor hall’s northeast corner started in 2011. It’s entirely run by area homeschooled youth age 13 and up, who are striving to practice their entrepreneurial skills.

Participants each receive a booth, which features half an 8-foot table, a chair, and a tablecloth. They have the same schedule as the regular vendor hall (Thursday setup, 5-8 p.m.; Friday, 9-6 p.m.; Saturday, 9-5 p.m., then tear down).

As you’re planning your vendor hall shopping, you may want to note these booths in our vendor map (available under our vendors page).

They include:

  • Bishop Brothers Blacksmithing/Prudent Pockets
  • Forget-me-not
  • Nutriplant Agriculture
  • JT Pens
  • Irregular Joe
  • The Resurrection Garden

Please stop by these booths and show your support!

We have updated this blog post, originally published in 2015, for timeliness and detail.

    Are there any booths left for this part of the conference? We seem to have missed the deadline.
