An 18-year-old Shreveport software developer is launching a summer business program for teenage entrepreneurs who want to learn how to start and grow a business.

Justin Martin says he’ll pair each student with a mentor who will assist the teens as they progress through various stages of business development. Martin says this new program, called the 20/20 Challenge, is to get teens to act on ideas that have been percolating in their head.

Shreveport programming firm Juma Labs has released an app that is a complement to the popular online flash card tool, Quizlet, used by students to study for tests. Justin Martin was inspired to write the program called Flip Quiz after seeing so many of his high school friends diligently make Quizlet flash cards, but never study them. He said his Flip Quiz program sends the user their flash card questions via text messages.
