Students Throw Entrepreneurial Pitches at Statewide High School Business Competition

Four 上学校 business teams in Ms. Magaletti’s entrepreneurial business class presented their capstone pitches in the final competition for the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship(NFTE)/Innovate South 佛罗里达 Business Plan Competition at 圣安德鲁’s School.

The student teams competed in real-world boardroom-style pitches that highlighted a number of products, including a virtual mirror that helps with time management (MarkMyMirror), a social app that brings same-skilled golfers together (TEEmate), a food truck that grills up tasty invasive species (大坏鬣蜥), and a child-proof inflatable guitar case (InflaCASE). 

Laying out their presentations, each group vied for the crown before a panel of judges in the  Auditorium at the Dr. Albert Cohen Family Center for Entrepreneurial Studies in early March. The judging panel included management consultant, 对冲基金经理, and 圣安德鲁’s parent Jason Berk, Amazon marketing strategist Laura Petschek, and business executive Chris Ellington. 

学生们, whose delegated titles included C-suite titles and responsibilities, applied extensive market research, 产品开发, and consumer experience analyses to their work. 

At the end of the presentation, 获胜的团队, 大坏鬣蜥, sold the judges for their presentational polish, 敏锐的市场研究, and overall purpose—to eradicate pesky invasive creatures who threaten to destroy 佛罗里达’s rich ecosystems on land and sea. 大坏鬣蜥 will go on to compete on a regional level against schools such as Pine Crest, 格列佛预科, 和美国的遗产. 

Big Bad Iguana CEO Christopher Pankey Warren said his team worked hard to target their menu to a South 佛罗里达’s culinary customs and adventurous nature, offering Caribbean-style feral pig, 鬣蜥, 和狮子鱼.

“It’s nice how a silly name and a food truck can go all the way,” shared Christopher. “Moving forward, we’re obviously planning to revamp our plan and make it the best possible. Our goal was to win and there is no reason we can’t keep on winning.” 

Magaletti said the growth of her students’ public speaking and marketing skills was striking. 

“What’s really great about this process is knowing they’re going to present to an authentic business community as a panel of judges,”Magaletti说. “There  is an extrinsic motivator for our students to raise the level of their presentation beyond the scope of an intrinsic grade. Their brand is on the line, their pride is on the line, so the students started out at the beginning of the year presenting them the way they would in a typical history class, which was more about content and not about looks and branding. Now, I see their growth in terms of giving a pitch versus giving a presentation.” 

Innovate South 佛罗里达 is a business plan competition among top private schools in Palm Beach, 布劳沃德, and Miami-Dade counties to benefit the NFTE in South 佛罗里达.Since its founding in 1987 NFTE has reached more than 1.200万年学习者. In 佛罗里达, NFTE has reached over 60,000 students since 2006.
