Bringing ‘Shark Tank’ to local students

Submitted by Phillip Smart

These gifted and talented students from Minden High School got to pitch a business plan idea to a “shark tank” panel. The sales pitch included an overview of the idea, costs, location, mission and business statement, company goals, and a marketing plan. They did a tremendous job. I am excited for their future. I got to sit along side some great community leaders on the “shark tank” panel, Steven Lingenfelter, President, Coca-Cola Bottling Co of Minden Inc., Tracy L. Campbell, Investment Advisor Representative, Meriwether Wealth & Planning, & Alisha Meeker, Branch Executive, Citizens National Bank. Looking forward to doing it again next year!
