|Teacher A:||Young entrepreneurs at 10s & 11s? Are you serious? How long?|
|Teacher T:||Here’s how. First, they learn the what, the who and the whys of entrepreneurship. Then on to market research on current business products and services. Big and Small.|
Second, they watched videos of teen-entrepreneurs with inspiring start-up stories they can learn from.
Third is product development that considers consumer needs, cost and availability of raw materials, brand design and packaging. Then marketing strategies.
|Teacher A:||Sounds college. Long hours, hard work.|
|Teacher T:||And it gets harder still.|
|Teacher A:||H-h-h harder?!?!|
|Teacher T:||Next comes the ELEVATOR PITCH where they sell their ideas 5 minutes max before three invited people from the business world. The guest panelists look at product samples, listen to powerpoint presentations, ask questions, clarify competing figures, give suggestions and feedback.|
|Teacher A:||Done, right?|
|Teacher T:||Nope. There’s more.|
|Teacher A:||M-o-r-e? OMG!|
|Teacher T:||They work on their product. They test what works, what doesn’t. They get it done for the big one.|
|Teacher A:||The big one? Sounds scary.|
|Teacher T:||Hehehee. The Hele Fair.|
|Teacher A:||ENOUGH!!!! I see the picture. The finale is the Hele Fair where all the products are sold.|
|Teacher T:||R-i-g-h-t!!!!! Wanna come?|
|Teacher A:||Sureeeee. When?|
|Teacher T:||April. Hele Fair online.|
