Shark Tank comes to Canfield! Students at Canfield High School have been learning about entrepreneurship through Junior Achievement’s JA Be Entrepreneurial program. On Friday, January 6, 2017, from 8:30 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. the students will present their product ideas to a panel of judges including Julie Michael Smith, Joseph Jeswald, Joseph F. Angelo, Vicki McGee, Gregg Warner, and Camille Favre.
This program introduces students to the essential elements of a practical business plan and then challenges them to start an entrepreneurial venture while still in high school. Students learned about advertising, competitive advantages, financing, marketing, and product development with local business mentors teaching the Junior Achievement (JA) lessons.
This program was made possible through a grant to JA from The Burton D. Morgan Foundation. The Burton D. Morgan Foundation’s mission is to champion the entrepreneurial spirit with a vision of a free enterprise society that supports entrepreneurship and cultivates economically independent citizens who contribute to the improvement of their communities.
