Thirty-three students in Lynbrook High School’s Virtual Enterprise class recently attended the Long Island University Tradeshow to showcase their original business on a professional level.

High schoolers dressed their best in matching suits with pops of orange to represent their company, Revive. The tradeshow, hosted by Virtual Enterprise International, was attended by student-generated businesses from across Long Island. The whole class contributed to creating an on-brand booth to show off their innovative idea of heating and cooling inserts that help with muscle pain and people who live in extreme climates.

“These tradeshows prepare us for the real world,” said Jack Greenfeld, who acted as the company’s CFO. “Getting up and dressing professionally really puts into perspective the possibilities that our futures hold.”

“As nervous as I was to present, I had no doubt of our group's abilities. The judges were welcoming and overall supportive,” CEO Sydney Coble added.

A business pitch was presented to judges by Sydney Coble, Elizabeth Ortiz, Brooke Mazzei, Jack Greenfeld, Olivia Romanowski and Joaquin Vergara. The Revive firm was presented with gold recognition for the newsletter the class created in the first couple weeks of business. In addition, the class sold around $300,000 in their products during the two days at the tradeshow.

This was only the beginning of the classes’ accomplishments, however. With two more tradeshows on the horizon and the possibility of attending regionals, the young entrepreneurs have much in store for Revive.
