Students Compete in the New York Business Plan Competition at Long Island University
On Monday December 19th students from the Yeshivah of Flatbush, along with their teacher Mr. Kweller, traveled to the campus of Long Island University to compete in the New York Business Plan Competition. The students presented the business plan and slideshow for their virtual business Office and Beyond to a panel of judges and representatives from twelve other virtual businesses. The event was the culmination of a semester long project in which the Virtual Enterprise International class established a virtual business and ran its day to day operations including product development, creating marketing campaigns, financial reports and a company webpage. Students Alan Frastai, Michael Abadie, Sam Torgueman, Teddy Beyda, Joe BenHaim and Sam Laniado impressed the audience and judges with their presentation and were each awarded $2,500 scholarships in the event they elect to attend Long Island Universities School of Business. The students learned a great deal and are excited to continue to build on this incredible experience.
