Entrepreneur – Section Four
In this final section of their Career Ready Academy, students will participate in a virtual entrepreneurship internship program which will enable them to gain a better understanding of the workplace environment. They’ll learn how to communicate with others, manage their time, work with a team, take initiative, set goals, problem-solve, and prepare for their first professional job experience.
Students will learn what it is like being an entrepreneur and have the opportunity to test and try concepts in a risk free simulated environment and experience and manage all aspects of creating their own business. Students will have 20 different business type options to choose from and will design and write a business plan for their entrepreneurial idea. They’ll do market research, create their elevator pitch, and learn how to raise money to fund their business. They’ll end their internship experience with an exciting end-of-year culminating project.
