Ten Aboriginal high school students from across the province are at the First Nations University in Regina this week.


They’re participating in the first Aboriginal Youth Entrepreneurship camp hosted by the School of Business.


Mark Fox from Ochapowace First Nation is one of the high school students.


He says he’s excited to learn how to be a successful entrepreneur.


“The camp’s actually pretty good — we’re learning how to be an entrepreneur, start our own business, get things started, be successful. I expect to get the general idea of how to be an entrepreneur, how to do everything, know how business works and how everything is out there,” Fox says.


Students will develop their own product and compete for prizes.


The camp runs until Friday.
