Congratulations to Mayra DeLeon, Simon Chen, Timothy To and Sophia Chow!
These four students from AOHT and Galileo participated in the Young Entrepreneurs Workshop by Maverick Business Adventures at Hotel Vitale on Oct 3, 2009. They learned about business models and received coaching from successful entrepreneurs. The students created and pitched their business idea to the group along with other students. The Galileo team was chosen as the top idea and given $500 seed money to start their business venture. In addition they were offered assistance and future mentoring to see their business idea come to fruition.
Their idea was to create a blog about how to start a Bed and Breakfast. They will be interviewing Bed and Breakfast owners, posting the video interviews on their blog and using these to create an e-book. The final phase is to turn this into a published book.
Below is video of the students pitching their ideas, the group chosing a top idea and our students winning top honors. The video is 40 minutes, but you can skip around to find them.
