Students at OLHMS had the chance at real-world business experience through a recent class project. After coming up with a viable business, students then had the chance to pitch their company to the “sharks” similar to the show Shark Tank. On the show famous entrepreneurs or “sharks” are presented new companies or products seeking investors- in class, fellow student’s took on the shark role deciding whether or not their peers’ companies would be a good investment or not.
“This is a fun way to have the students explore the business world. From the creative side to the numbers, each student is building a business from the ground up and learning what it takes to get an investment on a smaller scale. Following the format of the show just adds to it,” said Mr. Adams, Synergistics & Entrepreneurship Teacher at OLHMS.
