A Scoil San Eoin version of Dragons Den was held in the Senior Class today. Ciaran Coughlan and Bernard Brennan, two local entrepreneurs and business people,were invited into the school to join Ms Greene in being a 'dragon' . It was very interesting and exciting for both the teams of pupils and the 'dragons'. A huge thank you to Bernard and Ciaran for their time and input.
Six teams of pupils had to come into the 'den' and present their ideas for the Junior Entrepreneur Programme. Each member of the team had an idea and they had to pitch their idea to the 'dragons' using PowerPoint presentations, posters, samples of ideas etc. They had to include information such as the costings, potential profit, materials they would use, how and where it would be produced/assembled, how it would be packaged and marketed and options for places it could be sold. The pupils were asked questions by the 'dragons' about their product during the presentation.
Each team did and amazing job and the 'dragons' were blown away with the pupils creativity, business sense and presentation skills. Well done all!!
Stay tuned to see which idea was chosen as the final BIG IDEA!!
