The Walker’s Legacy Foundation, the sister-organization of Walker’s Legacy, is honored to present Mikaila Ulmer as the Girls Who Enterprise lead instructor for the summer program.
Girls Who Enterprise is an accelerated business development training program designed for multicultural young women in the age range of 12-17 that utilizes an original curriculum, a cohort model, and a structured learning environment to aid emerging business owners in exploring business operations. Programming begins July 28th, 2020, and ends with graduation on August 20th, 2020.
Though only 15-years-old, Mikaila Ulmer comes with experience beyond her years.
Mikaila Ulmer is the Founder of Me & The Bees Lemonade. She started selling her lemonade at youth entrepreneurial events and at her lemonade stand out in front of her home, donating a percentage of the profits to local and international organizations fighting hard to save the honeybees. That is why she touts: “Buy a Bottle…Save a Bee.” Now at age 15, her little idea from more than 10 years ago continues to grow and grow…by more than 500 percent since the company’s humble Austin, Texas-based beginnings. Today, the award-winning, ready-to-drink Me & the Bees Lemonades in five refreshing flavors is buzzing off the shelves of Whole Foods Market, The Fresh Market, World Market, H-E-B stores across Texas and Kroger stores in Houston. It is also available at a growing number of restaurants, food trailers, and natural food delivery companies.
Mikaila begins Girls Who Enterprise instruction with over 40 participants on Tuesday, August 4th.
