Students active in Collinsville High School’s Future Business Leaders (FBLA) and Kahok Cafe attended TrepStart Day sponsored by Independent Youth, a non-profit in St. Louis encouraging teen entrepreneurship.
A “Trep” 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.”
The event, held at St. Louis University, incorporated “experiential education through a keynote address and interactive breakout sessions with successful teen entrepreneurs.”
Dawn Dimitroff and Kelli Ponce, sponsors of Kahok Cafe and FBLA, accompanied the students.
