ION Rolling Hills Estates | Registration opens October 01 for the Student Entrepreneur Academy (SEA), sponsored by ION Network and its growing number of local affiliates. SEA drives youth innovation in developing new technologies, platforms and product companies at a rapid rate, – evolving into real companies that make money for their Founders and Families.

SEA is unlike any other after school program. The Academy transforms local middle and high school students (grades 5-12) into leading edge entrepreneurs, as they experience ideation through execution of real business plans. SEA’s student entrepreneurs align with local entrepreneurs, including brand / business development expert and angel investor Dave Behar, successful business, civic leaders and vendors to develop the brand and business, pitch to a panel of investors, acquire funding and resources, and launch their business – which may be a social movement that monetizes. As an option, SEA Young Entrepreneurs may receive college scholarships as part of their business mission, as they learn entrepreneurial skills before exiting middle school or high school, developing priceless social and business skills and mindset that drives an innovation and success path relatable to all their future endeavors.

“Our success path as a company and ionteractive plaform for millions, points to dedicated community involvement and innovative education to support youth and compliment traditional curriculum. Because we are proven entrepreneurs who have launched multiple successful companies with memorable and life-changing exits, gives us a unique opportunity to share this with others – namely aspiring youth and their families,” stated ION Founder and Brand / Business Development Dave Behar. “We stay on the bleeding edge of media, technology and delivery, nested in traditional values and our trademark iontegrity in business. Distribution and conversion are key in helping the companies succeed, and leading others to succeed in business is not typically possible by those who have not done it themselves.”
