Trep Start Day
A Trep, from the word entrepreneur, refers to an entrepreneur. TrepStart Day is a one-day, Independent Youth event where teens learn, lunch and launch into entrepreneurial thinking by interacting with successful teen entrepreneurs from around the US. Designed as a peer-to-peer exploration of entrepreneurial thinking and achievement know-how, TrepStart Day incorporates experiential education through a keynote address and interactive breakout sessions with successful teen entrepreneurs. It’s the starting line to launch into a lifetime of entrepreneurial accomplishments.

The opportunity to meet awe inspiring, impressive, mind blowing minors who crave risks in the pursuit to start new business ventures: TrepStart day is the coolest day of the year. Extremely cool way to learn from expertly seasoned peers; exhilarating; life changing experience: TrepStart day changed the way I live.
The TrepStart Experience
There is nothing like the energy of youth and combine that with the ‘entrepreneurial thing’ and there is majic in the room. It was pure pleasure to be a part of that experience and I look forward to working with Independent Youth and the startups in the years to come.
TrepStart Day was the most engaged audience of aspiring entrepreneurs that I’ve seen in years.
I have had the pleasure to speak at many different forums over the past few years and have found them all to be uplifting but the work being done by Independent Youth feels more timely than other organizations I have come in contact with. This organization is teaching the kids of our country how to fish instead of just giving them fish.
The Teen Entrepreneurship Symposium is a tribute to all that is possible- kids with great ideas for America. These young CEO’s are gaining great experience in business and leadership. The future is truly bright thanks to this wonderful program.
