Yeshivah of Flatbush students ventured to the 69th Regiment Armory in midtown Manhattan to participate in the Virtual Enterprise International 2016 New York City Trade Show. The students were a part of Mr. Kweller’s Virtual Enterprise class and have been working all year to create, manage and market their virtual business Tcorporation, a financial management and advisement company. Students have been involved in every aspect of running their virtual business including putting together business and marketing plans, completing financial reports, developing webpages and marketing campaigns, and managing sales and interactions with other virtual enterprise firms.
The Trade Show was an opportunity for students to sell their products and personally interact with other Virtual Enterprise firms from throughout New York City, the United States, and the World. Yeshivah of Flatbush students created their own booth promotional material and newsletters explaining both long term and short term market trends and explaining various retirement accounts including 401K and Roth IRA accounts. The young entrepreneurs were able to successfully demonstrate their knowledge of the financial industry to other students and industry professionals and business experts that came to see the event and learn about the virtual companies. The students enjoyed themselves, learned a great deal, demonstrated their knowledge of the financial industry, and made important connections with the business leaders.
