Young Achievers Excellence Program welcomes Pastor Apostle David Pettaway as a Guest Entrepreneur

HAMPTON, Va. - June 23, 2020 - PRLog -- Did you know Jack Daniels was actually invented by a slave but stolen by the person that receives credit? Did you know that the game Monopoly was invented by a woman but someone else put their name on and received all the credit? (Elizabeth Maggie in 1903 and it was called "The Game of Owners.") Did you know that 10-year old Bishop Curry from McKinney TX invented The Oasis which prevents children from dying by heatstroke when left in hot vehicles?

Pastor Apostle David Pettaway teaches the children of the valuable lesson of protecting your intellectual property. He gives multiple examples including his entrepreneurial multi-million-dollar mistake as a youth. He developed an abdominal exercise tool prototype and never patented or licensed his tool. Now, 45 years later, this exercise equipment is still being sold. The actual patent was created in 1988 but Pastor created his prototype in 1975. For him this is a multi-million-dollar mistake.

He further shares lessons of inventors who have had their inventions stolen from them including during the slavery period. "If you have an idea that you think will make you money, write it down (document it) and then research what you need to do to make it legal. Do not wait until you get it perfect."

With the support of the City of Hampton Violence Prevention Mini-Grant Program, the 4-week non-profit Young Achievers Excellence Virtual Program teaches City of Hampton middle school students how to take their dreams, passions as well as frustrations and turn them into platforms of advocacy, expression and entrepreneurship.

During this program, students will make presentations; interview youth and adult entrepreneurs as well as pitch their business ideas. Graduates will be given a business plan roadmap workbook as well.
