Students acquire business planning skills by brainstorming, testing and presenting business ideas in the ‘Shark tank’. They pitch their business ideas for a product or service in the space of 10 minutes, having produced or considered prototypes, customer personas, competition, validation, stakeholders, sales, marketing and finance, risks and legislation, and future plans. Entrepreneurs will then evaluate and give feedback on the business idea and students will gain valuable tips for developing their business ideas.

10 minutes per presentation.
Feedback and discussion – 15 minutes.
