Student Start Up Program
The Fostoria Chamber is working to build young entrepreneurs. They are once again hosting “Student Start Up”, which is a program for students in grades 6-12 in the Fostoria area who are interested in starting or expanding a summer business. Through a grant, the Chamber is able to fund 10 new student start-ups. Each successful applicant will receive $200 to start their business and as a bonus, if they turn in a report and a photo of themselves engaged in business at the end of the season, they will receive an additional $100. “We want the process to be simple and to provide the students with the experience of running a business and not just as an employee.” Click here for the brochure which contains the application. The application can also be found online at www.fostoriaohio.org/ssup.
