RVR is teaming up with students at Galileo School for Gifted Learning this month for our own version of the popular television show, Shark Tank, in which entrepreneurs present a business idea and ask the judges (“sharks”) to invest money and time into helping them grow their business and make their idea into a reality.
We’re challenging third-fifth graders to brainstorm a business or community solution they want to implement. The students will prepare a presentation for the “sharks” (members of the RVR team) that describes the product or idea and provides a plan that shows why the “sharks” should invest.
The “sharks” will then bid on these ideas and invest up to $50 in the students’ business or community solution. The students will continue to work with the “shark” until the end of the school year to make the plan a reality.
The fun kicks off this afternoon and the RVR team will help students every step of the way, from brainstorming a business idea, to creating the project plan to preparing to present their idea to the “sharks” on March 11, 2014!
See you in the tank!
