The Business Ownership Initiative and the Forum for Community Solutions hosted an event, “Creating Entrepreneurship Pathways for Opportunity Youth,” to learn about these experiences from the people closest to them. 
The event featured two panels exploring how youth entrepreneurship can build wealth and promote economic self-determination in low-income communities. The first was a conversation with leaders from programs supported by the Youth Entrepreneurship Fund, who shared how they adapt their work to the needs of the young people in their communities and strategies for engaging youth in the design of their programs. The second was a conversation with a young entrepreneur who participated in the program, describing how it set her up for success.
