On April 24th, EforAll held its 2013 Student Entrepreneur Showcase at the Everett Mills in Lawrence. Over 100 student and youth entrepreneurs showcased their innovative ideas from various sectors such as food, fashion, education, and tech. The EforAll Student Entrepreneur works with high schools, colleges, and community youth groups to provide connections, support, and seed grants to students and youth to try out their entrepreneurial ideas. Since the beginning of 2011, the EforAll Student Entrepreneur Program has funded over 600 student and youth entrepreneurs.

“I had a great time showcasing Grab a Bite, a website to help students get deals on local restaurants, at the 2013 EforAll Student Entrepreneur Showcase,” says Aldo Beqiraj, a senior Electrical Engineering student at UMass Lowell. “I made a lot of great connections and got valuable feedback. This experience will no doubt help me take my business idea to the next level.”
