Why A Teenager Should Attend Marketplace 2011

Teens are the future of our country, and in the same respect, teens are the future of our small, mainstreet businesses as well as our rural communities.
The Nebraska MarketPlace Conference is an event focused on energizing small businesses and revitalizing rural communities. This conference is designed not only to help current entrepreneurs and business owners, but also to encourage youth interested in entrepreneurship and other rural issues.

Teens that participate in these types of conferences are more likely to succeed in their future entrepreneurial ventures.  Teenagers involved in their communities at a young age are a valuable asset to their community.

Teens should attend the MarketPlace conference this year because it is a fun, educational way to learn about starting, developing, and funding your business. At MarketPlace, they will hear stories about other high school students, starting their own businesses... I know, because I heard similar stories when I and a bunch of others from my high school attended MarketPPlace 2010!

Although becoming an entrepreneur and a business owner at a young age is exceptional and certainly rewarding, it’s not for everyone. MarketPlace offers sessions about career exploration and taking advantage of opportunities, things that are valuable to everyone, not just young entrepreneurs. Through networking opportunities, youth gain advantages now and in the future.

So, take a chance, and take advantage of the special student early bird registration and attend MarketPlace.

You will hear from top-notch professionals with high quality presentations. The Resource Zone will feature abundant networking opportunities with people from all around Nebraska and other states. I hope to see you at MarketPlace 2011 this year!

The conference will take place in Kearney, NE at the Ramada Convention Center on Tuesday, February 22, and Wednesday, February 23, 2011.
