Would-be Teenage CEOs Pitch Ideas in Clark School Program


High school students pitched their ideas for start-up companies as part of the first university-level entrepreneurship course offered by the Clark School's Hinman CEOs Program to pre-college students.

Five teams of students from up and down the East Coast presented their ideas to Clark School Dean Nariman Farvardin and Christopher Foster, deputy secretary of the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development. The event was the conclusion of an accelerated summer course that exposed the teenagers to the basic business, strategy and leadership skills needed to launch new ventures.

The companies presented by the students ranged from an automotive customization service to an urban retail concept to weighted athletic apparel.

The course, a part of the Young Scholars Program, was taught by James Green, associate director of the Hinman Campus Entrepreneurship Opportunities Program (Hinman CEOs). The Hinman CEOs is a joint venture between the Clark School's MTECH unit and the Robert H. Smith School of Business.
