Entrepreneurs Impress!

Congratulations to the high school entrepreneurial students who successfully competed in the California Lutheran University New Venture Fair, an expo-style event where teams share their innovative startup projects in competitive environment.

Oaks Christian has participated in this competition for the last few years. This year went up against Thousand Oaks High School and Bakersfield Christian High School.

Under the guidance of entrepreneur teacher Kristin Bell, the students worked on their startup ideas for quite a few months, talking to customers, honing their business models, and creating commercials, pitch decks, and prototypes.

Seventeen OCS student teams participated at the expo where their projects were reviewed and judged.  Four of the teams were awarded for their projects (click to view video) : Fithub, Catch, Fatwax and Staffify.

After the New Venture Expo, students also held a shark-tank like Demo Day in the Bedrosian for students and staff as the final showcase event for the class.
