Students brainstorm for business

Walnut Grove entrepreneurs offered mentorship to high schoolers.

Students gathered Wednesday at Walnut Grove Secondary to come up with the next great business idea.

The Millionaire Mindset meeting was organized for teacher Bruce Young’s Business 12 class, along with other interested students.

Members of the Walnut Grove Business Association stopped by the school library to talk with the kids and offer some advice.

The event shows students possible careers they can pursue in business, Young said.

After hearing from some speakers from the local business community, the kids broke up into groups and brainstormed some ideas of their own.

This is the third year of the event, which previously went by the title BYOB – Be Your Own Boss.

Events for the business and entrepreneurial students this year will culminate in “Gator’s Den,” a Dragon’s Den-style event that will see students pitch their ideas to local business owners in late May.
