Saunders College of Business is a proud partner of the Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!). We are excited to host the 14th Annual Saunders Scholars Competition on June 4, 2022. The Competition Finals will be broadcast live on YEA's Facebook and YouTube channels. Registered viewers from around the country will get the opportunity to vote via text for the $1,000 cash prize People's Choice Award.
Additionally, we are excited to be offering the YEA! competition winner three free sessions with our top-ranked Simone Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship coaches to help advance their businesses to the next level.
Headquartered in Rochester, New York, YEA! represents chapters across the nation, recently expanding internationally in China and India. This year 21 teams from across the country will compete virtually for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and a People’s Choice Award.
Saunders College attracts students similar to YEA! members who possess a curiosity that drives them and place a premium on entrepreneurial thinking and innovative solutions. As an active supporter of YEA!, we are proud of the YEA! impact it has on transforming local middle and high school students into creative entrepreneurs across the nation and internationally. We have enjoyed this partnership, where we collectively support the vision of E. Philip Saunders in supporting YEA! students, offering scholarships to competition winners and providing classroom resources for YEA! teachers, and advisors.
