Bethel Shark Tank Program- Free Summer Camp for Bethel Teen Entrepreneurs
Participants will learn the tasks necessary to launch and run a new business, including identifying needs, solving problems and developing products that consumers would want to buy. Students – who can work as a team or individually -- don’t need to have a formal business idea to start the program but will be coached on what it takes to start a business or service for the community.
The kickoff and information session will be July 8 at 6 p.m. with an optional showing of a Discovery Channel documentary on sharks to conclude the evening.
The program will take place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 to 8 p.m. for three consecutive weeks beginning on July 14 and ending July 30. The Shark Tank competition will take place on August 4 when competitors will present their business plans to “The Bethel Sharks,” local business executives, entrepreneurs and community members who have volunteered to judge the contest.
Pizza and drinks will be served each night.
