Highlights From Our Second Workshop

The second workshop for the Running Start program was another huge success! With the help of Jason Tracey we reviewed sales techniques, and the amazing Plante Moran team of Kelly Hambright, CPA, Anthony Sasinowski, CPA, and Kacie Herter, CPA, used an interactive exercise to help students learn how to create a budget for their start-up using prop money from the movies.

We were also so honored to have several speakers and volunteers including Malik Jordan from SpellBound; Tabitha Mason, of Zingerman's; David Zinn, artist extraordinaire; Kate Henson from General Systems & The LEAD Institute; Beki Fraser, CPC, ACC from Focus For Growth, LLC; and Dan Kelly from Washtenaw County. Thank you to everyone for contributing their time to youth.

During the next workshop students will learn about venture capital, banking, creating a logo, business card and website
