The LFHS Foundation has partnered with Lake Forest High School to create the Business Incubator. Starting in Fall 2015, this Junior level Honors 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. Principles and processes from the LEAN concept help students test their thinking. To further inspire creativity, the customized classroom (Business 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 earn funding for their businesses. Part of this process also includes the student teams working to create promotional materials, press releases, and to solicit potential investors to attend Pitch Night.
Teams that are funded during Pitch Night will then to continue on with the process of starting up their business in the second year program, Business Accelerator – a Senior level honors business class.
