Business-minded students in a league of their own

In the Media: Progress Leader, Tuesday 25 June 2019, page 12

Strathcona Baptist Girls Grammar Year 9 students attended a female-lead entrepreneurial workshop at the Tay Creggan campus.

The workshop invited a panel of successful businesswomen from the League of Extraordinary Women to mentor students as part of the schools TC Envision program.

Students were encouraged to design a commercial or social business idea with the support and feedback from mentors such as Mia Klitsas (Founder of Moxie Tampons) and Sheryl Thai (Founder of Cupcake Central).

The workshop proved to be not only educational but inspirational in many aspects, as students openly shared their business aspirations ranging from a vertical indoor garden for apartment-style living to a food app that matches users with recipes and local restaurants based on their palate.

Tay Creggan students aim to complete their unique business prototypes and finesse their pitching skills throughout the year as part of the TC Envision program.
