Shark Tank

This apprenticeship gives students the chance not to take the world as it comes, but make it the way they wish it would be. They will begin to see every aspect of a business not as a “given” but as a choice that the owner made, which they will be equipped to improve on. With the guidance of local business owners, they will learn how to settle upon a successful business idea, create a brand, devise marketing strategies, plan their budget to make a profit, and make a formal presentation to loan officers to “apply” for their start-up loan. Through structured group work, this class builds investment and ownership in shared ideas.
