Students examine characteristics of successful entrepreneurial enterprises and begin their own school business. Students brainstorm businesses they could begin as a class, identifying those that would most likely be successful. Students work with a business mentor to determine the various departments (or jobs) that will be necessary for the business to operate. Examples are quality control, design, research and development, production, finance, advertising, and accounting.
