The Center for Hispanic Entrepreneurship and the Mike Loya Center for Innovation and Commerce have teamed up to create the Rookie Entrepreneur Program, an intensive week long summer camp held by the College of Business Administration at the University of Texas at El Paso. The REP provides a practicum of entrepreneurship in a multidisciplinary setting, where students are given the opportunity to learn how to start a business from the ground up, learn how profit works, and are encouraged to take the necessary steps to become entrepreneurs by experiencing various positions that are typically seen in a real business scenario. The past two years the REP was a two day program held in the summer of 2014 & 2015 which consisted with a first day of training and a second day of practicum around the COBA. Due to such success the REP has been redesigned to provide high school students a better understanding of business foundation knowledge and comprehensive business exercises via marketing, accounting, finance, fundraising, pitching, management, and research classes among others. The program will consist of Monday through Friday classes with top mentors from the college of business administration, networking with top local entrepreneurs, business etiquette dinner, golf class, breakfast and lunch, business and entrepreneurship courses and more.
The Center for Hispanic Entrepreneurship invites any high school student interested in business to join our fun energy-fulled summer camp on July 16 - 21, 2018.
