Young Entrepreneurs Academy Turning Students Into CEOs

7-2015 yea

By the end of the coming school year, chances are there will be several new businesses in Mobile, thanks to the Mobile Area Chamber’s inaugural Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA) class of 2016.


Fourteen students from the Alabama School of Math and Science were selected to participate in 30 weeks of instruction on starting and running a business for the upcoming school year.

The YEA is managed locally by the Mobile Area Chamber, with the University of South Alabama Mitchell College of Business providing instructors and class space.
