Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) -- High School students are learning how to run their own businesses this week.

Eight students from area high schools are participating in teen enterprise.

The program was created by the University of Minnesota Duluth's Center for Economic Development to help teens realize that running your own business is a viable option after graduation.

The students had a chance to talk to Duluth business owners and learn from experts about what it takes to run a business.

"We've been down to Canal Park and talked about the different kinds of business that are out there," said Sandi Larson, Public Engagement Coordinator. "We walked through Canal and talked about the variety of businesses and why you would want to locate there or where you would want to locate your business."

Students talked with owners of Art in the Alley, Frost River Trading Company, and Zeitgeist Arts Cafe.

Teen Enterprise is in its third year.
