Springmont students share business ideas

Springmont students share business ideas

New business ideas sometimes come when we least expect them and from unexpected sources. Twelve students, ages six to 13, are getting a jump start on creating their new business as part of The Springmont School's ClubPreneur program.

Springmont's Marketing Director Andrea Horton teaches the steps needed to start a business, including identifying the need, researching the competition, determining pricing and generating buzz for the product or service.

Each student delivers a presentation outlining their business strategy. The concepts recently presented included a lemonade stand with distinctive flavors, a cleaning service, a workout video that allows viewers to earn coins to play a special video game, and custom-designed cases to accessorize your IPhone, IPad, IPodTouch or similar device.
