On Thursday, October 29, 2020, County Prep students, Christopher Dhurpat, Nicholas Privitera, and Brihana Singh, all from Mr. Ferri’s Entrepreneurship class, participated in a “virtual” Shark Tank Competition sponsored by Junior Achievement and Samsung. The students attended an Executive Welcome session, a Lean Launchpad Overview, and two segments on customers, value propositions, channels and revenue streams. Each of the six participating high schools from New Jersey were paired with business mentors from Samsung to work on a Shark Tank proposal. Each high school team presented a business proposal to the judges who then handed down their decision. County Prep students earned a Second Place designation for their entrepreneurial proposal.. Congratulations to them for their hard work.
A big thank-you is extended to JA, Samsung, Mr. Ferri, and our outstanding students for making this a successful virtual SLE.
