Complete inspiration. 25 high school teams setup booths at a Santa Barbara co-work facility to compete in San Marcos High School Entrepreneurship Academy's first annual Business Showcase event. The top 5 teams presented their business concepts to a panel of judges in front of a packed room, Shark Tank style. I am honored that the student's incredible teacher Mr. DeVries invited me to participate as a judge.
Many of the teams had actually built out their concepts to the point of generating revenues, while others had prototyped or proven a concept with solid demos. The students were passionate, explained their business models, go to market strategy, marketing plans and actually had good solutions for real world problems! If this is a sign of America's business future, I am sincerely encouraged.
