    Teen Entrepreneur Academy (TEA) is a hands-on, learn-by-doing, one-week residential business entrepreneurship start-up summer camp for high school students at Concordia University in Irvine, California. TEA teaches high school students real-world entrepreneurship, best business practices, principles of free enterprise, and "how to" start and launch their own business.

    This hands-on training is available at a summer business academy at Concordia University through our innovative Teen Entrepreneur Academy (TEA). It's never too early to teach young people the basic principles of business and entrepreneurship. TEA provides high school students with real-world business training that helps teenagers become leaders with ethics and integrity. 

    Through the TEA program, students learn how to realize their business ideas or the passion in their hearts for business. Faculty from Concordia's School of Business and Economics, local successful business leaders, and entrepreneurs provide training. Student teams will write business plans and learn best business practices and strategies for starting a business. Students work in teams of 3-4 on their business plan. The team with the best start-up business plan wins $1,500 in the entrepreneurship business plan competition sponsored by Citi and held on the last day of the summer camp academy.
