A Lil Twist at the Long Island Regional Virtual Enterprises Trade Show and Business Plan Competition
By James Anastasio
On Tuesday, January 9, 2018 our school’s Virtual Enterprise Class traveled to Farmingdale State College to participate in the Long Island Regional Virtual Enterprises Trade Show and Business Plan competition. Students interacted with other high school students from all across Long Island making business deals. Our school’s firm markets pretzels incorporating a unique twist like the current pretzel of the month, the shamrock shaped pretzel in acknowledgement of Valentines Day. At the event our firm more than doubled their sales projection. In addition a team of five employees including Juniors Daniela Posillico, Ben Armstrong and Ivy Fernandez and Seniors Andre Duarte and Preston Monteforte presented the company’s business plan in front of a panel of judges with professional business backgrounds. Our firm also was awarded second in website design, the company newsletter and the video commercial the students put together. Our firm will be attending the upcoming Virtual Enterprise Trade Show on April 17th at Pier 92 in New York City. All are welcome to attend and come support the firm.
