Wichita-based Youth Entrepreneurs is moving to the Experiential Engineering Building on the Innovation Campus at Wichita State University.

Youth Entrepreneurs, a 501(c)(3) organization focused on providing high school students in need with business and entrepreneurial education and experiences, will occupy 4,000 square feet next to the new community makerspace, GoCreate. It is currently headquartered at Koch Industries.

Youth Entrepreneurs participants can apply for GoCreate scholarships from the Fred and Mary Koch Foundation. Students will be close to GoCreate, a lab filled with equipment and staff to create projects, as well as other university resources, including the Center for Entrepreneurship and WSU Ventures, the university's technology transfer program.

"This opportunity offers our students access to tools and resources that can really take their ideas to the next level," Liz Koch, chairwoman of the Youth Entrepreneurs board of directors, said in a statement.
