Class Business ------> Soft Pitch ✅
--
The importance of FEEDBACK early on in the business planning process cannot be overstated.

After having to pivot from their original business venture idea, students pitched their current idea and details to the CEO Board of Directors, school admin, alumni and a handful of community members. Their goal for today was to get as much feedback (comments, suggestions, questions and concerns) to help guide the rest of the early planning process. It also gave students an opportunity to practice their public speaking, networking and conversation skills!

The panel provided a wealth of feedback which students will use to make improvements to their business venture idea. As soon as details are solidified, the marketing committee will be releasing their first wave of advertising for the event. Stay tuned!

A special THANK YOU for the members of our panel that took time out of their busy schedules to provide feedback for our students:
