Business INCubator Program

Since Fall 2017, District 200 high schools have offered students an authentic, collaborative, entrepreneurship experience with Business INCubator.

This course is designed to get students excited about becoming true entrepreneurs. Students have the opportunity to create and fully develop their own product or service. Real-world entrepreneurs and business experts 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 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 fire up the entrepreneurial spirit by putting student teams in front of actual investors to pitch their innovative ideas to the INCubator Advisory Board.

Anyone who would like more information or is interested in an Advisory Board, mentor or coaching position, please contact Don Longacre.
