The Motown Museum in Detroit is offering an entrepreneur program for teens ages 13 to 18, CBS News reports.
The program, called the Pop Shop, will share the success story of Motown Records, founded by Berry Gordy's parents.
Gordy's siblings would pair up to pitch a business idea, and the winning team would get a six-month residency at the family businesses.
"This allowed all the Gordy children an opportunity to conceptualize, launch, and operate their own businesses," the museum said in a Facebook post.
"Portions of revenues earned from the companies were reinvested start a family fund, Ber-Berry Co-operative," which provided money to establish Berry Gordy's first record company.
Museum officials say the Pop Shop will bring four entrepreneurs together for an entrepreneurial incubator program.
The program will include two months of in-person and virtual workshops, one-on-one mentoring, and networking with entrepreneurial and social media experts.
Students must describe their business idea and explain how it is connected to the music industry.
The application deadline is May 10. Read the Entire Article
