Business moguls beware, the pupils of Craggagh NS are feeling bullish and are poised to launch a new business in the coming weeks!
We have broken out into 5 groups and are currently working on separate ideas.
The 5 ideas at research stage right now are:
- Doggie Bags
- Healthy Smoothies
- Wholesome Cupcakes
- Handmade Soap
- Customised Candles
In a couple of weeks, our groups will enter our “Dragons’ Den” to pitch their ideas. The best idea will then be adopted by the whole class as our “Big Idea” and the business will begin in earnest.
We have spent the last few weeks studying famous entrepreneurs such as Steve Jobs of Apple and Ingvar Kamprad of Ikea, local entrepreneurs like Shane Gilmartin in Kiltimagh or Mary Flanagan in Balla. We also looked at some case studies for other schools’ projects.
Today, we’re researching costs of supplies, how much of an investment we may need, how or where we might sell our products and what jobs, tasks and skills will be required.
