This year’s Summit—a dynamic week of business competitions, leadership activities, a global innovation challenge, and an international trade show—will bring thousands of budding entrepreneurs from across the U.S. and around the world together with educators and business partners for a one-of-a-kind global business convention. Each event is designed as an opportunity for VE students to showcase the professional skills and business acumen they have developed by launching and running a Virtual Enterprise company—no small feat given the challenges of remote learning this year. Yet, in spite of these challenges, VE students continue to demonstrate incredible resilience, determination, and a “can-do” spirit, which has been an inspiration to us all. With many schools still operating remotely, this year’s YBS will once again take place online. We have created many exciting events, and hope you will participate in some of the many sessions and activities described below.
To all 2021 YBS participants, we wish you an unforgettable week of entrepreneurship and business experiences in action! We are hopeful that these experiences can be the inspiration that moves you forward towards a fulfilling and financially secure future. That future begins now!
