Lynbrook High School students enrolled in Dr. Benedict Tieniber’s virtual enterprise course participated in the elevator pitch competition at the Long Island Virtual Enterprise Business and Entrepreneurship Leadership Conference on Oct. 19 at LIU Post. The students pitched their company “Fit Pet” and heard from key speaker Marie Moody, the founder and president of Stella & Chewy.
More than 1,500 students from across Long Island attended the event which focused on career-readiness and entrepreneurial enterprise. The conference was open to all VE high school students on Long island and gave them the opportunity to hear from successful entrepreneurs and industry experts. In addition, the students were able to practice networking and attend engaging breakout sessions.
Although Lynbrook High School did not make it to the final round of the competition, the group did well. Eric Levine, CEO, led the elevator pitch and did a phenomenal job. After the elevator pitches, all the students attended breakout sessions. Breakout sessions included leadership and personal banking, financing your business, marketing your business, and social impact of your business.
