The Western Dakota Tech Business Department is preparing to feed the sharks at the Future Business Professionals Day career exploration camp. The one-day camp will be held Tuesday, March 15, on the Western Dakota Tech campus.
Western Dakota Tech invites the media to attend.
The camp is free and open to all high school students. Students will explore business-related programs, including Accounting, Bookkeeping, Business Management & Marketing, Social Media Marketing, Entrepreneurship, and Office Professional.
Students will attend three group sessions that focus on financial skills, marketing skills, and sales skills. The sessions are cleverly referred to as The Bling, The Look, and The Pitch.
Students will learn about networking and entrepreneurship, attend an etiquette luncheon, get familiar with Photoshop, design a company logo and business plan, and then present their ideas to the "sharks".
Presenting to "sharks" is a concept based off the ABC reality television series Shark Tank. Contestants on Shark Tank pitch entrepreneurial ideas to venture capitalists who can then choose to invest.
Students who present to the Western Dakota Tech "sharks" will receive critiques and recommendations on their business plans.
