"This semester a number of students from three different Career and Technology programs at The CEC Middle College found out first hand what it is like to “pitch” a business idea to a panel of investors. It has been a great opportunity for me personally to have some deep and insightful conversations with a number of students about their entrepreneurial ideas. I have seen a broad range of start up thinking. A few of the ideas were predictable but by far most of the ideas were new, creative and tied to the student’s daily world. Best of all, the word is spreading, other students are asking their teachers “ why don’t we do this as a class”. Thanks for giving our students this opportunity."
