"Shark Tank" Style Business Presentations
Students from Mrs. Saeli's Intro to Business and/or Entrepreneurship Classes participated in a "Shark Tank" style event to present ideas for their businesses. Each individual or group of business students explained what their proposed business was, who their market was, their mission statement, their competition, a financial statement and more to the "Sharks" before fielding questions.
Following the presentations, a short break for refreshments gave the "Sharks" a chance to look at their scoring rubrics, prepare comments and choose first, second and third place presentation "winners." Students returned to the MPR with the "Sharks" turned around to face the group and address each business proposition with suggestions and comments. Selected for 3rd place were Luke and James Lojek for Akron Arms. Tyler Marble was chosen for 2nd place for his Akron Falls Ice Rink presentation. Ava Smart was chosen for 1st place for her fitness center, Plank 45 for Women.
A hearty thanks to the "Sharks" - County Legislator Ed Rath, Melisa Schrock from Schrock Metal, Trisha Yambor, manager for Akron Market on Main, and Joey Hamilton, an entertainer and owner of Checkers the Inventor.
