Cape Cod students win entrepreneurship contest with business

BARNSTABLE — Younger people today can understand a large amount at Barnstable Superior College: how to clear up an algebra problem, how to read through DNA code and how to make perception out of literary classics. Some students are even mastering what it requires to start off a company.  

In a competition similar to TV’s “Shark Tank” — where business people try to persuade a panel of tycoons to devote in their idea — students recently pitched their business tips to a panel of judges.

Rising from the pack on June 14 had been Nicholas Pouliot and Dominic Ford, who received prizes at a New England semi-closing level of competition for young business people. 

The opposition was sponsored by the Community for Instructing Entrepreneurship, or NFTE, a global nonprofit organization that gives entrepreneurship training to center and high university college students.

Barnstable High School students Nicholas Pouliot, left, and Dominic Ford won second and third place, respectively, in the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship New England Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge in Boston on June 14, 2022. Pouliot will advance to NFTE’s National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge in New York this fall, where he will compete against students from across the country

What were the Barnstable students’ concepts?

Pouliot arrived up with options for a biodegradable, reusable marker for instructors to use in classrooms.

The thought for “Pouliot’s Preservation” arrived to him after noticing how a lot of markers teachers threw absent. The marker would have a exclusive cap and back layout so the marker could be refurbished, he explained. 

Pouliot won $1,000 and a opportunity to contend in a countrywide NFTE competitors to be held in New York Town in October.
