The Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce held an Elevator Pitch Competition for members of the Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA) on Wednesday, January 17, at the Boca Raton Innovation Campus (BRIC).
The competition included 16 students who are members of YEA and attend various local schools. They were required to give elevator pitches about their business ideas to three judges as well as an audience of attendees. Saint Andrew’s students and YEA members, Mateo Goldberger '25, and Elan Beker ’28 came in first and third.
Congratulations to Mateo and Elan on their big wins and to all our SA YEA students.
