Year 13 Business Studies students have been busy running their businesses. As part of the course, students are required to participate in a Dragons Den competition. The competition is held at the Polytechnic, with 22 student companies from across Bay of Plenty schools competing. Students were required to present a five minute ‘sale pitch’ of their business idea, with an accompanying power point presentation. This was followed by an intense five minutes of questioning from the Dragons (Judges.)
Aquinas College had three companies show-casing their skills.
· Fizz Up: Putting the wow back into children’s bath time with a ‘two in one’ bath bomb that dissolves leaving a soap.
· Pro-Cell Organics: Pea protein / acai berry natural protein powder that enhances muscle repair.
· Sovereign: Gaming mouse innovation with no clicking sound.
All the students performed exceptionally well and survived detailed questioning from the judges. Teams were well prepared and presented their business idea with flare and confidence. Congratulations to the ‘Fizz Up’ team who won the award for most engaging presentation and $100 cash.
