Future Leaders Forum @ West Career & Technical Academy


On April 11th, 2018 the Las Vegas Hub of the Global Shapers hosted their inaugural Future Leaders Forum at the West Career & Technical Academy. Speaking to a collection of juniors and seniors on this year’s theme, entrepreneurship, the goal was to both introduce the necessary steps for becoming an entrepreneur and explain ways the students could be an entrepreneur in their own life—even at a young age. Featuring a collection of Shapers—such as Lisa Song Sutton ("Personal Branding") and Vincent Kwan ("Introduction to Venture Capital")—as well as the Director of the UNLV Center for Entrepreneurship, Leith Martin ("How to Grow as a Young Entrepreneur"), our group presented the high schoolers with a variety of perspectives from current entrepreneurs and young professionals. After the presentations, a Q&A session was held so the students could further engage with the forum participants.
