What is the primary problem your venture is trying to address and how are you addressing it (or planning to address it)?

NAYOB’s is geared toward younger and younger youth who are starting both for- and non-profit businesses. There are no long term support and advocacy associations there to help them. N.A.Y.O.B. helps support the minority group of young business owners. We provide young adults from 13-25 years of age with business education classes to improve their current business knowledge. In this Education program we gear the class to the type of businesses that exist in their field. We give our 13-18 year old members not only a business education but also help with the search for getting into college. We find a mentor for our members, not just preparing them for the business world but also for life and their quest for a higher education.

The Story

Motivation

As I joined (NFIB) The National Federation of Independent Business. I am among there youngest members I realized that they really do not cater to the need of young business owners. As I attended the 2008 Youth Venture summit I saw that there we a lot of young business owner. How are heads of LLC, DBA, Corps, 501 c 3 and other business types. That need education in the field there business is and or other field. Some needed budgeting, marketing, public speaker ect. So NAYOB was born.
