Bill Rasmussen of ESPN Inspires Kansas City's Young Entrepreneurs

Ask any high school student what they want to be when they are older and they will proudly boast about their goals of being an NBA superstar, a chef, a broadcaster, or a famous photographer.  High school students have no problem telling you exactly what they want to do when they graduate from college.  But how many of them want to be entrepreneurs?  Quite a few.  

Which is why Youth Entrepreneurs of Kansas has been created.  Youth Entrepreneurs is a nonprofit organization that teaches business and entrepreneurial skills in high school classrooms and offers hands-on experiences to help students succeed as business owners or employees.  

Place an entrepreneurial-minded high school student in Youth Entrepreneurs and he is sure to succeed.  But put an entrepreneurial-minded high school student in front of the founder of ESPN and he is sure to succeed, listen and be inspired even further. 

Youth Entrepreneurs is doing just that.  On November 18, Youth Entrepreneurs is hosting its inaugural Business for Breakfast benefit in Kansas City with life-long entrepreneur and founder of ESPN, Bill Rasmussen.

Attendees of the benefit, moderated by Bruce Haertl, Eyewitness Sports, will gain business insights from Rasmussen as he shares his entrepreneurial success story.  Rasmussen undoubtedly changed the face of sports and television by brainstorming a network that has become the Worldwide Leader in Sports, ESPN.   

The Business for Breakfast will be presented by Lockton and will be held at the College Basketball Experience at the Sprint Center from 7:30-9:00am on November 18th.  The cost is $75 per person and all proceeds will benefit Youth Entrepreneurs.
