Growing entrepreneurs, one idea at a time

The LFHS Foundation has partnered with the High School to create the Business Incubator.  Starting in Fall 2014, this course in the Business Department offers students a unique opportunity to be true entrepreneurs by creating and developing their own product or service. Students are coached and mentored by real entrepreneurs and business experts from our community. During the yearlong course, student teams learn about ideation, marketing, accounting, human resources, as well as the legal aspects of running a business.To further inspire creativity, the customized classroom (Innovation Incubator) is designed to ignite brainstorming and foster collaboration as they develop products and services for the real world.  The course culminates in Pitch Night a “Shark-Tank” style presentation where student teams present their innovative ideas to a Board of Directors for the chance to win funding for their businesses.Please email questions to  lfhsfoundationbi@gmail.com
