CEO, Spotlight Video Productions
Eric Meyer launched Spotlight Video Productions through the program and transformed his passion for filmmaking into a business that generated tens of thousands of dollars in revenue. As a sophomore in high school, Eric graduated as the CEO of his own company, producing wedding videos, corporate productions, and even traveling around the world to produce resort promotional videos.
A few months after graduating from the Academy, Eric formed a second business that launches and manages youth academic day camps across the Northeast United States. In 2010, Meyer employed 16 people across three states.
“The skills, confidence, and experience I developed in the Young Entrepreneurs Academy enabled me to launch, run, and grow two businesses for seven years,” says Eric. “I couldn’t imagine being where I am today without YEA!”
