Ahwatukee Young Entrepreneurs Academy Students Impress
Six students who participated in the Ahwatukee chamber’s Young Entrepreneurs Academy are getting some help to launch their small businesses.
According to the Ahwatukee Foothills News, the six students met recently with a volunteer investors panel to pitch their ideas in hopes of getting some investors to help launch their businesses.
The young entrepreneurs have been meeting weekly under the direction of chamber president Pamela Manwaring to learn about starting and running a business, the report said.
Each student reportedly had five minutes to make a pitch to a panel that included representatives from Two Men and a Truck, Epic Produce, bioXcellerator, Dance Studio 111 and Realtime Senior Living.
The business idea pitches included, according to the report, a sports bag that smells good and eliminates odors; a start-up that offers aerial drone photography and video services; a hands-free mobile viewing device holder with a neck pillow; a service that helps with American Sign Language for babies and their families; a jewelry-making-party service that comes to the customer; and bookmark notepads featuring signature art.
