Budding Year 6s Business 'Shark Tank' Experience
King’s budding Year 6 entrepreneurs have been working on a Business Plan this term as part of their PBL Business and Economics topic. Students were tasked with creating a product or service that would contain sustainability principles. They then produced a business case with a plan to commercialise their product and worked on a 'pitch' for a team of visiting venture capitalists. All of the Year 6 students created fantastic business proposals and the top six were selected for King’s Shark Tank culminating event.
On 28th March, the King’s auditorium was filled with a captive audience of Year 6 students, who watched in anticipation as their peers presented their ideas to the ‘sharks.’ The four sharks followed with some challenging questions but the students responded with confidence. Congratulations to our winning entrepreneurs whose product was called MultiSip! Chase McLaughlan, Jacob Tunbridge & Malachi Patterson designed a drink bottle that can contain multiple drinks.
Many thanks to our amazing 'Shark' judges, Mr Jason Knight, Mr Ralf de la Mare, Mrs Elize Strachan and Mrs Hope Malcolm, for giving their time and bringing their management expertise to help select our 2022 winners.
