The Eraser Bracelet, Soap It, creating avatars, or rock art may be the next big craze among youth at Rising Leaders Academy, a Bay County public charter school, committed to developing young entrepreneurs. This year the school is developing a micro society in which students can earn “Crew Cash” for the goods and services they provide. The BIC was invited as a partner to engage the 3rd – 8th graders in a Business Start-up workshop on September 9, 2016.
Pam Kidwell, BIC Director lead the students in developing an “elevator pitch” and their first SWOT analysis for their business plan. Students shared their perspective on what are the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats of their business concept.
