Sparkible’s inaugural startup camp for teenagers in Little Rock still has a few spots open.
We posted about Sparkible’s launch just last week. Sparkible is launching a series of summer startup camps for teenagers that will teach them about idea creation, innovation and building a business. It’s an awesome endeavor from Mike Steely and David Moody that could provide a big boost to the state’s growing startup ecosystem.
Steely is a serial entrepreneur and startup educator based in Little Rock. Moody has launched several ventures and is an ARK Challenge mentor based in NWA.
The first set of camps is scheduled for July 8-12 at the EAST Initiative on Ranch Boulevard in west Little Rock. One camp will run each day from 8 to noon, and the other from 1-5. Some spots are still open, Mike reports. More camp info here.
As we said before, this could be a great investment in a kids’ future.
