A dozen youth from five of the City’s YouthSource Centers gathered at the USC Community Room on Saturday December 1, 2018 for a two-hour interactive entrepreneurship seminar on how to build their dream business
A dozen youth from the Central Los Angeles, East-South Los Angeles, South-Crenshaw, and North Valley YouthSource Centers attended an Entrepreneurship Seminar on Saturday December 1, 2018.

Held at the University of Southern California Community Room, the seminar was a two-hour crash course on how to build your dream business.

The interactive seminar was led by entrepreneur Aaron Bilgrad, founder of The Blank Press, a business strategy, marketing, and creative video advertising company.

The youth entrepreneurs developed an idea to build an affordable recording studio for underground artists in South Los Angeles and build a consulting firm to help advertise projects through creative design. They learned how to build a business, gained a valuable mentor who is willing to individually work with youth on building their business ideas, and left with friends to collaborate with on their ideas.
