HOW IT WORKS
First-time participants will learn the fundamentals of starting a business during our Entrepreneurship 101 workshop. Seasoned entrepreneurs will take part in advanced workshops facilitated by local business leaders. Past workshops have included Merchandising with SEPHORA and Business Incubation with Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center.
Planning & Production
Participants of all experience levels will develop a Project Plan using our proprietary toolkit. Then, they will work independently to produce between 25-50 products, which they will sell in-person at our pop-up shop. They will also use our one-of-a-kind toolkit to develop their pricing model and merchandising schematic.
Marketing Plan & Execution
Participants will help to ensure a bustling pop-shop by identifying marketing channels as part of their marketing plan. They will execute on their plan by promoting our pop-up shop through their preferred channels e.g. e-mail, flyer distribution, school newsletters and more.
