Empowering the Business Spirit

The Empowering the Business Spirit (EBS) ENLACE Youth Entrepreneurship Project was funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation in 2005 as the youth education branch of the EBS Network. EBS is a collaborative of business assistance organizations, lenders and educational institutions committed to providing easy access to free services for potential and practicing entrepreneurs, entrepreneurship and financial literacy education for youth and adults in four counties in northern New Mexico – Rio Arriba, San Miguel, Mora, and Taos.

The primary activities sponsored by the ENLACE/EBS Youth Entrepreneurship Project are summer youth entrepreneur camps, summer internships, teacher workshops, an annual statewide business plan competition at the NM Governor's Summit on Economic Development, the annual 2020 Youth Entrepreneurship conference, and curriculum development for young entrepreneurs.
