LHS Attends UNK's New Venture Day

October 23, 2017

This October my Entrepreneurship class had the great opportunity to participate in UNK’s New Venture Day. New Venture Day is put on by Enactus members at UNK. My students were split up into groups with other students from around the area and were led by a UNK Enactus member. Each group had to come up with a business idea and complete several different tasks associated with the business. Some of the tasks were negotiating a lease with a local real estate agent, obtaining a loan from a local banker, deciding on a factitious ethical decision, and coming up with a mission statement. At the end of the day, each group presented their project to a panel of local business leaders. There were winners in each of the three areas of business and an overall winner. I am proud to say that Edvin Ramirez was one of the members of the team who won the overall award for their online tutoring business. The students had a great experience learning from local business people and other students in the area. It is a great event that we hope to participate in again.
