Two students from Pt. Loma High and one from Crawford High will advance onto the national BizFest Youth Entreneurship Competition this week in Miami Beach.
BizFest, a signature initiative of the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Foundation, is an innovative and intensive entrepreneurial training program where Hispanic high school juniors and seniors learn how to turn their hobbies into profitable business ventures. The three students were winners in the local competition that was held in August.
“I learned a lot about the different components of business plans” said Thai. “I learned about industry profiles, management, marketing and financial. I also appreciated that they invited keynote speakers to talk to us, they were a great motivation.”
