Become a business creator and learn the skills you need for success in life, no matter what future path you choose.
Cadettes learn to think like entrepreneurs by creating a prototype for a product or service that solves a local, national, or global issue. They get feedback by organizing a focus group, conducting a survey, and/or using a SWOT analysis, then they revise their prototype, research competitors, and interview industry experts. They also create a business plan that covers costs, marketing strategy, and how they'll grow the business. Then they pitch their idea to friends, family, or classmates.
