The San Diego Center for International Trade Development’s Youth Entrepreneurship Program hosted a stop of the Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour (EET) on Friday with the Sweetwater Union High School District’s CTE/ROP Program at their San Ysidro High School campus. The EET brings the country’s top young entrepreneurs to help spread the entrepreneurial mindset during an inspirational high-energy conference. The event, attended by over 250 students from several high schools within the Sweetwater district, encouraged students to pursue their entrepreneurial ideas while also providing skills for building networks and obtaining resources. The event’s moderator, EJ Carrion, co-founder of theStudent Success Academy and best-selling author, provided practical and actionable information on how students can pursue their dreams and achieve success in business and in life. The event also featured a keynote talk by Aaron Steed, co-founder of MeatHead Movers.
