Success for Virtual Enterprise Students

Glen Cove High School students in Judith Checola’s Virtual Enterprise class participated in the Business and Entrepreneur Leadership Conference at LIU Post on Oct. 7.

At the conference, more than 50 Visual Enterprise students from New York City and Long Island participated in a Speed Networking contest. The fearless students gathered on stage of the Tilles Center and each delivered his or her strongest rapid-fire business pitch to the 1,000 students and teachers in attendance. The pitch, often referred to as an elevator pitch, aims to intrigue potential customers and partners from across the Visual Enterprise marketplace and generate future business for their company. Senior Michael Hatala delivered the pitch for Glen Cove High School and won second place for the Glen Cove firm, Click-n-Shop Groceries.
