Students to display businesses at CEO trade show

Students from the Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities program will showcase their products and services next month at the Central Minnesota CEO annual trade show.

This year's trade show will present seven new businesses, with products ranging from bath bombs and cat entertainment systems to custom T-shirts and polar fleece blankets. The students will also offer services such as photography, deck maintenance and phone case customization.

Individuals attending the shows will have the opportunity to buy products, sign up for services and book appointment times with the owners at each booth.

The CEO program was designed to introduce area high school students to various facets of the business world and to help them build new skills and professional connections in the local business community.

Ultimately, the program guides each team member through starting and running their own functioning business, all while cultivating essential skills and an expansive, long-lasting network of community members and business owners.

Central Minnesota CEO and the Midland Institute for Entrepreneurship partner together to establish and support CEO programs across the nation that are long-term economic development programs for nationwide forward-thinking communities.
