Young Entrepreneur Day at The Yard
The Wynwood Yard’s entrepreneurial spirit soars this January as it spotlights Miami’s youngest and brightest minds at its inspiring Young Entrepreneurs Day, with the generous support of presenting sponsor, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
Kids and teens will show us their business chops, share their ideas and motivate our community with their infectious determination, while guests kick-start some of your own ideas through demos, workshops, readings, info booths and activities.
Peruse the Wynwood Yard grounds, enjoy live music throughout the afternoon from Live! Modern Music and Young Musicians Unite, fuel up with eats from the food concepts at The Yard and sip on soft drinks, lemonade or libations from The Bar at The Yard.
