H. Frank Carey’s Virtual Business Students Rank in Top 10 – School News
The H. Frank Carey High School Virtual Enterprise Class ranked in the Top 10 in the Business Plan Competition at the Virtual Enterprise Long Island Regional Conference and Exhibition.
Virtual Business is a course that simulates a real business. Students taking the course determine the concept and name of the business and are able to create and design products to sell. They apply for positions within the company, go through a rigorous interview and are then placed in their respective positions. Students are responsible for managing day-to-day operations.
This year, Carey’s virtual business class created an eco-friendly clothing company called âEcoVibeâ.
The students who presented EcoVibe’s business plan were Nick Abruzzo, Managing Director; Kaitlyn Beers, Chief Operating Officer; GÃ©rard AndrÃ©, head of security; Joe Doona, Chief Financial Officer; and Sebastian Viti, accounts receivable.
They faced schools on Long Island and the tri-state area. The conference also gave students the opportunity to participate in the trade show event, where they virtually sold products to other virtual business attendees. EcoVibe has made more than $ 200,000 in sales.
The next step is the presentation during the championship round of the business plan at American Portfolios on February 25th.
