Junior Achievement of Northern Indiana will tomorrow host its Young Entrepreneur Marketplace event. More than 40 young people will sell their goods and services from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Freimann Square in Fort Wayne.
Some features of the marketplace include specialty dessert sauces, handmade jewelry, computer repair, fresh flower arrangements, clothing, art, gifts, and accessories.
The young entrepreneurs range in age from 9-21. Youth from Allen, Adams, DeKalb, Huntington, Steuben and Wabash counties will participate in the event.
“Helping to encourage, support and develop entrepreneurship is vitally important to our community, and Junior Achievement is excited to bring this opportunity to the youth of the Fort Wayne and surrounding areas”, says Karen Cooper, JA director of Entrepreneurial Initiatives in a news release. “We encourage the community to come and shop the marketplace and encourage area youth to embrace being business owners.”
