Business Incubator - "Sharktank in the Classroom"


This session will outline a new innovative business course that is being taught at Lake Forest High School called the Business Incubator. The Business Incubator course is designed to get high school students excited about becoming entrepreneurs. In this program, students have the opportunity to create and fully develop their own product or service. Real entrepreneurs and business experts serve as coaches and mentors guiding students through the Lean Startup process. If funded, students spend their senior year actually creating and running the business. This course has transformed the Business department and resulted in significant increases in enrollment and student interest!
