Big Spring SD Business Incubator Program inspires future entrepreneurs
Have you ever heard of Shanma’s Chocolates? Or Find My Fido – a company that designs tracking devices for runaway dogs? How about PrismPostal, an outfit that can put a sensor in your mailbox to tell you whether you have mail?
These are all companies that students at Big Spring High School created as a part of a “Shark Tank”- style class that matches them with local business mentors who help teach them how to be entrepreneurs.
On the popular TV show, entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to a panel of investors with the goal of getting funding for their ideas. While the students at the Cumberland County school aren’t asking for thousands of dollars from billionaires, they are building companies from the ground up, and learning a lot about life in the process.
