Teen Entrepreneurs

The teen founders of LilACS and Co., a bowtie business.

School is out for summer and teenagers across the country are on the hunt for summer jobs. However, some Charlotte teens have skipped the job application process by starting their own small businesses instead. How have these teenagers used their passions to turn a profit? What resources are available for youth in the greater Charlotte area to gain business experience? And how has the face of a business owner diversified over the past few years? A conversation about entrepreneurship when Charlotte Talks.
