The 10th annual Teen Entrepreneur Summer Academy gets underway on Monday.  It’s hosted by the Richard M and Helen DeVos Center for Entrepreneurship in the Seidman College of Business.  High school students from across West Michigan will spend a week at GVSU.  They’ll learn about the world of entrepreneurship and creating a start-up company.
