Walter Pierce was a 6th grader at STEM Academy in East Orange when he participated in the first year of the Newark Young Entrepreneurs Academy in 2016. His company, Generational Comfort X, produced handmade neck pillows and his business plan earned him the honor of representing our program at the 2016 Saunders Scholars Competition in Rochester, NY.
Now a freshman at STEM Academy, Walter is interested in reuniting with our program and its mentors to explore a new business idea. We look forward to working with him this year and helping him to launch his new business. Below, Walter shares his experience in our program.
