The Grand County Office of Economic Development encourages business ideas and took their efforts one step further to work toward “growing our own” business entrepreneurs within our youth.

After sponsoring an exciting three-day Entrepreneurship Investigation Camp, we were able to ignite a spark in Grand County youth and help them develop their own business ideas.

As a result these young entrepreneurs were given the opportunity to sell their products or services at the GCED tent at last week’s Granby Farmer’s Market. Of those entrepreneurs Granby’s Wesley Gioia sold his all-natural, soothing soaps that he makes with his mother Tanya Gioia at Joyous Skin Care. Wesley sold over $25 in his product. Cameron Mellies represented the Fraser Valley in selling his handcrafted, colorful bracelets and keychains. He successfully matched Wesley’s profit sales.

Stop by the Grand County Economic Development booth at the upcoming farmer’s market to support Grand County’s young entrepreneurs hard at work!
