Business Students Compete in LI Trade Show

Glen Cove business students recently took part in the Long Island Trade Show and Business Plan Competition at SUNY Farmingdale. Twelve students from Judi Checola’s Virtual Enterprise class participated in a competition to present a business plan to judges and then attempt to sell their product to visitors of the trade show.

The class’s virtual business is Click-n-Shop Groceries, an online supermarket and catering company. Senior Hanna Ali served as the company CEO and oversaw the writing of the plan and preparation of the company’s presentation. Overall, the sales team managed to amass $99,000 in virtual sales at the trade show. Click-n-Shop Groceries took home their first award, earning second place in the Most Enthusiastic Firm category.

The trade show provided invaluable real-life business experience, and the Virtual Enterprise class is looking forward to their next trade show, which will be held in New York City in April.
