Hello everyone!

In today's class we kept working on the social media posts for our businesses, and came up with amazing promotions for our customers.

Next class we will finish up all of the marketing for the companies, come up with a pricing strategy and start building our products.

PLEASE NOTICE: today's class was cut short due to a Mental Health workshop the kids had from school, which as we all know is a very important matter.
For this reason, we will have an additional 30 minutes to our next class so that class will go from 11:30am-1pm.
Additionally, since the kids are on break for 2 weeks, we will resume our class on April 29th.

Thank you all for the cooperation, have a great week!


Day 4 (April 1st):

Hey everyone, hope you're all doing well!

In today's class we started learning about the sales funnel and why does a business need to follow it to be successful. We focused on the first step today, which is awareness. 
Our marketing managers took control and, with the help of their group members, planned the marketing strategy for the business. 

Some groups have already started working on their social media posts, but we will continue working on those next class along with coming up with a pricing strategy and learning about a product pitch.

Thank you all for the cooperation, I hope to see you all next class.


Day 3 (March 25th):

Hello everyone!
Today we learned about what happens inside the company before launching the products. We then assigned the roles of the company between the groups' members, wrote a product description to help our customers understand what the businesses are for, and our operations managers took charge of the business plan.

Next class, the finance managers will make a pricing strategy with the members of the group and our sales/marketing managers will come up with a marketing strategy. 

Hope to see you all next class, have a great weekend!

Hi everyone, my name is Nelly :) I am a student at the University of Toronto, studying Mathematics, Statistics and Business.  

I am an Explorer Hop instructor, working mainly in in-school programs, and for the next two months I will be your kid's entrepreneurship coach!

During this program the kids will team up to start a company which creates and sells real products or service. By starting their own company, the kids will gain valuable skills in marketing, team work and business planning.

I look forward to seeing you all every Thursdays at 11.30am.
