Business INCubator Program

Beginning in Fall 2017, District 200 high schools will offer students an authentic collaborative, entrepreneurship experience with Business INCubator.

This course is designed to get students excited about becoming true entrepreneurs. Students will have the opportunity to create and fully develop their own product or service. Real-world entrepreneurs and business experts will serve as coaches and mentors guiding student teams through the process of ideation, market research, and business plan development. Over the course of the year, student teams will learn about marketing, accounting, human resources, as well as the legal aspects of running a business to get them geared up for Pitch Night. Pitch Night helps to further fire the entrepreneurial spirit by putting student teams in front of actual investors to pitch their innovative idea to the Board of Directors.
