Have you ever wanted to start your own business and/or had an idea for a novel product or service that would fix a problem? This course is designed to get students like you excited about becoming true entrepreneurs by giving you the opportunity to create and fully develop your own products or services. Real-world entrepreneurs and business experts serve as coaches and mentors, guiding student teams through the process of ideation, market research, and business plan development.
Over the course of the year, you will be working as part of a student team to learn about the science of marketing and accounting, as well as the legal aspects of starting a business. Teams will have access to a network of professionals to further develop their skills (teamwork, problem-solving, presentation, communication) for college and career readiness. Pitch Week helps to further fire the entrepreneurial spirit by putting student teams in front of investors so they can pitch their innovative idea to win funding and turn their wishful thinking into reality.
