Entrepreneurship teaches students about business
By Steven Poltorak
The purpose of the Entrepreneurship course is to teach students about the fundamentals of business and to impart more understanding about entrepreneurs around the world. This course allows students to be creative in creating product ideas, individual business plans and Shark Tank pitches.
For the Celebration of Learning project, students created their own Shark Tank pitch, where students presented their individual business plan to visiting adults and tried to receive an investment from them (in the form of Summit paper bills). If a student received bills, this meant that student presented their pitch persuasively and gained potential investors.
“I enjoy that it’s teaching me skills that I can actually use in my life if I choose to start a business or not,” Summit Prep sophomore Josh Tanouye said.
