Aspire to own your own business?
From market livestock animals and craft sales to worm farming and bio-fuel production, 4-H has been involved in entrepreneurship from its beginning. Entrepreneurship combines business concepts and creativity. 4-H entrepreneurship programs can help you take an existing project to new levels or assist you in bringing a great idea to life while making a profit.
Forms of Entrepreneurship
Entrepreneurship can come in many forms, including making improvements or finding new uses for existing products. Entrepreneurs find solutions to problems, like turning waste products into renewable energy sources. Entrepreneurs identify opportunities, such as selling cold pop on hot day. Entrepreneurship can be a career path and avenue to a successful financial future, and being involved in 4-H entrepreneurship programs today can strengthen your existing skill set.
