MBV Students in the News!

Minnesota Business Venture (MBV) students are receiving press coverage in local newspapers across the state. We’ve seen more than twenty articles published highlighting the unique opportunity students took part in during their summer vacation that has given them a leg up as they return to school and prepare for jobs or post-secondary education.

This summer, 324 high school students representing 100 schools came together for a week-long camp to learn more about leadership, business, financial literacy, and career options.

Check out some of the featured articles in our news roundup:

Apple Valley: Four students from Eastview High School attended MBV this past summer. Harita Duggirala, Akarshna Iyer, Bemnet Kika and Sanjana Reddy spent a week developing their business and career skills.
