Starting a Business

How do businesses become financially successful?

Project Description

Elementary school students are natural entrepreneurs. In this project, students work in teams to develop a business concept, conduct market research and/or competitive analysis, create a realistic financial plan, and pitch their businesses to an audience. As students are encouraged to create and plan a business, they develop key mathematical skills involving operations, grouping, and decimals, as well as competence in areas of technology, communication, and collaboration.
