Students in the Collinsville Triad Maryville CEO (Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities) program brought the culmination of six months of effort on April 30 to Old Herald for its Trade Show.
Collinsville-Triad-Maryville CEO said in a news release the event was a success and offered some detail on the program.
“From coming up with their business idea, market research, creating a logo, developing their social media, presenting a business plan to bankers and participating in a national pitch competition, they truly create a business during their time in CEO,” the release states.
In late April, CEO students participated in a Mock Trade Show at Triad Middle School, where they gained experience setting up their booth and talking to new people about their business, according to the release.
“We had 262 people attend the Trade Show at Old Herald,” Multiple students sold out of their product, others booked services with new clients. All enjoyed speaking to the public about their businesses and representing CEO,” the release states.
