Why is it so important for a mountain town to consistently create new jobs? How can our youth get involved in creating a growing, vibrant economy? Through a multiple touch-point project with the Ketchum Innovation Center (KIC), students will learn some basic entrepreneurial skills and apply them in a project to upgrade the infrastructure at the hub of entrepreneurial activity in the Wood River Valley (the KIC). Possible projects could include renovating office space or creating other building improvements, all based on a student created budget and pro forma analysis.
