Year 6 Students' Shark Tank Experience

Primary

King’s budding Year 6 entrepreneurs have been working on a Business Plan this term as part of their Business and Economics subject. Throughout the unit, students created a product or service they wanted to commercialise and then devised a business case they could present to a panel of ‘venture capitalists’ to help launch their business. All of the Year 6 students created fantastic businesses and the top seven projects were selected for King’s inaugural Shark Tank culmination event. 

On Thursday, the King’s auditorium was filled with a captive audience of Year 6 students, who watched in anticipation as their peers pitched their idea to the ‘sharks.’ The three sharks followed with some challenging questions but the students responded with confidence. Congratulations to the winning duo, Grace Evans and Sophia Whiting, whose product The Nibbler was designed to provide a fun and safe way for pets to enjoy their food, with five successful sales to date. Both girls received an annual pass to Dreamworld for their efforts.

Many thanks to our amazing judges Mr Brett Eddie, Mr Brendon Deeley and Ms Lucy Batt, for giving their time and bringing their business acumen to this event to help select our 2020 winners.
