IDEA: An INCubatorEdu Program
Community Businesses and School Collaboration
Come see what IDEA/INCubatorEdu is and how you and your business can get involved
Marian Central Catholic High School is introducing a new course: Innovative Design and Entrepreneurial Application, or IDEA. The course is driven by the INCubatoredu program, which offers students an authentic entrepreneurship experience. Students will develop and test their own product or service startup in an attempt to gain investment funds in a final shark-tank style pitch event.
Real entrepreneurs and business experts serve as volunteer coaches and mentors guiding student teams through the processes of developing hypotheses about a business concept and testing those hypotheses. This cycle of experimentation is combined with foundational business content such as marketing and finance. The businesses students build are real - they are not businesses cases or simulated experiences - which means students experience mistakes, take risks, and learn to pivot based on market needs.
We need YOU, the business professional, to make this happen. Make a difference in your community and join us.
