Cristo Rey Young Entrepreneur Awarded Seed Funding

Congratulations to CRBR 10th grader Chelsea Buckley for receiving seed money for creating a business through the Young Entrepreneurs Academy of Baton Rouge (YEA BR).

Through the YEA BR, students meet weekly to work with local entrepreneurs and business school instructors at LSU’s E. J. Ourso College of Business to create a business plan, pitch their idea to investors for seed funding, register their businesses with the Secretary of State’s office, work with graphic designers for logos/branding, and create pop-up businesses in Baton Rouge’s Ebb and Flow Festival.


We are very proud of Chelsea for receiving $800 in seed investment funds for her business, You Cube, a quiet fidget cube.
