Institute for Enterprise Entrepreneurship & Marketing Class underway for Nassau Co. students
For the third consecutive year, the Institute for Enterprise and Nassau Co. School District have partnered in presenting the Entrepreneurship & Marketing class for students in Nassau Co. high schools. The four credit (two honors-weighted) class will immerse the students in real life learning experiences with the opportunity to take risks, manage the results, and learn from the outcomes.
Students will learn the aspects of creating and running a business directly from successful entrepreneurs, operate a school based business, and create a personal business. The program will culminate with a student competition that may result in start-up capital or a scholarship to pursue their education.
The program's unique partnership with I4E provides students with unprecedented access to the business leaders of Nassau County and opportunities for interaction on a regular basis through: frequent visits to local businesses, guest speakers on campus, and pairing with a business mentor.
On Thursday of the first week of class, John Campbell Elwell, Vice President and Co-Founder of the Institute spoke to the students about entrepreneurship, laid out the reasons for the creation of the class, and fielded questions from all the students.
