YNS Entrepreneurship Academy

Your Next Star Entrepreneurship Academy

In October 2022, in the wake of our 2nd Your Next Star Academy, MDSC kept the momentum going with our employment initiative, once again partnering with Collettey’s and RSM to host the first-ever Your Next Star Entrepreneurship Academy at RSM US LLP.

The Entrepreneurship Academy was custom designed for aspiring entrepreneurs with Down syndrome, offering tips and tools for them to achieve their dream of running their own businesses.

Catering to self advocates who have explored or developed expertise in a range of fields, the Entrepreneurship Academy helped equip these hopeful business owners with specific skills and resources to launch and sustain a successful enterprise.

Then, to get them started, later that month, our Entrepreneurship Academy graduates – Kayla, Michael, Steph, and Tucker – had a special opportunity to exhibit at the first ever RSM Holiday Market, showcasing their businesses and selling their products to RSM employees leading up to the holidays.

Stay tuned for future Entrepreneurship Academies.
