ION is one of the founding members and lifetime supporter of the Student Entrepreneur Academy (SEA) – drawn from CEO Dave Behar’s high level innovation expertise and start-up experience as a business leader and ionfluencer.
ION is also the Founder of the Youth Entrepreneur Summit (YES!) and ION Business operates it in conjunction with Ignition Week and other ION Business ionitiatives and economic development activity.
In 2014 and 2015, just on the Palos Verdes Peninsula and at Chadwick School, Behar drove the launch over 40 youth companies spanning multiple industries and is committed to scaling these student companies for real revenue growth. Joining us were local business leaders, held at Trump National Golf Club.
Fast forward to 2018 and 2019 and our scale is unprecedented in collaboration with the Student Entrepreneur Academy, while SEA embeds in many ionitiatives to for students to gain greater experience, positioning and business acumen.
