Students Take Part in Business Pitch Competition

July 1, 2014

Several local students had a chance to pitch their business ideas today as part of the Computers 4 Kids Start Your Own Business pitch competition.

The one week course lets students design their own businesses, and on Tuesday they presented their ideas to a panel of outside judges.

Course organizers say the competition teaches students some pretty universal skills that students say will be very helpful in the years to come.

“I think it was a really good camp because I learned about business,” says Ziahna Bryant. “I learned about marketing and I learned about meeting new people and networking, and I think it’s really beneficial to help me with my future career.”

Bryant won first place and will be receiving over $100 funds to kick-start her gourmet desserts business.
