Young Entrepreneurs…Are You Ready to Enter “The Arena?”

“The Arena” is an action-packed web series where teen entrepreneurs present their businesses to a group of coaches who are successful entrepreneurs, Olympians, professional athletes and celebrities. It’s not an idea pitch or pitch event; these teens already have a small business and are looking for advice and being able to showcase their businesses as examples for youth across the country. The coaches know what it’s like to be in the arena and will provide advice the young people will need to grow their skills and their venture.

Four aspiring entrepreneurs will "Enter the Arena" to get input and feedback from 8-time Olympic medalist Apolo Ohno; Dancing with the Stars’ Julianne Hough; and Sageworks Founder Brian Hamilton.
