You are cordially invited to Marist High School’s
5th Annual Pitch Night
Featuring students enrolled in IDEA
(Innovative Design for Entrepreneurial Applications)
Wednesday, May 1
Please join us for the presentation and refreshments.
Senior and junior students enrolled in this course have created and fully developed their own product or service. Student teams worked through the process of ideation, market research, and business plan development. They have learned about how to create a product that solves a problem, customer input/data usage, competitive considerations, financial modeling, marketing and operational execution. This is a hands-on course created to allow students to imagine, design, construct, market, and refine their own business ventures. Fifteen teams presented their company in an initial round of evaluation, and six advanced to this final event. Students will pitch their companies to potential investors at this event as the culmination of their coursework.
