EV Construction launches ‘Shark Tank’-style kids program

A Holland-based construction firm launched a summer program for students to explore and develop business ideas.

EV Construction announced its Young Entrepreneur Scholarship (Y.E.S.) program, which will provide $10,000 for employees’ children to develop business structures and ideas with mentor help.

Y.E.S. is eligible to children in grades four through 12 whose parents currently are employed by EV Construction.

“We are constantly assessing our current workforce needs to ensure we have the staff in place for the projects we are constructing,” said Mike Novakoski, president and CEO, EV Construction. “More than that, though, we are intentional about having a plan in place for attracting the next generation of EV employees. We see the Y.E.S. program as an opportunity to familiarize the children of our employees with EV Construction and pique their interest about opportunities within our organization.”

Eligible contestants were mailed a letter by EV Construction to introduce the program and invite them to consider their individual talents and interests that might be channeled into a business venture.
