ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - New Mexico teens who have business ideas now have an avenue to share them. It's a competition called "Teen Albuquerque Startup Weekend."
A panel of local businessmen will judge the students’ ideas and hand out prizes that will help kick start the businesses--like a "patent plug" and "promotional video."
The competition was created by two teens themselves. They say their goal is to not only inspire teens to think big, but also make a difference in our city.
Ninth grader Taylor Chavez said the event would be “an amazing experience, a real world experience; how to work with a team and see how businesses work in the real world."
The competition takes place Nov. 15 to 17, but you can start signing up soon.
