Mentors Help Student in Business Planning
Even though a new business might be years away, SCORE chapters throughout Wisconsin are encouraging entrepreneurship by mentoring young people. Tyler Ebert, a June graduate of D.C. Everest High School in Weston, is one of those students.
Ebert, who will attend the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management this fall with a major in entrepreneurship, was the 2012 winner of Wisconsin YES! — a business plan competition for students in middle and high school. He created Citadel Systems Security, a computer security company.
“SCORE mentors asked me difficult questions so that I had to really think about my business plan and how I could make it better. That challenged me to do more reading, gather more data, refine the business plan and meet with them again.”
