Spring 2018 MCC Shark Tank

MCC Entrepreneurship students are amazing! They are donating over $2100 in net profits back to the community!

For Intro to Entrepreneurship (BUS 130) class students, the semester was focused on actively going through the entrepreneurial process, from idea generation and opportunity evaluation to planning and launch of a business. Students took part in a 2-week competition to get the most sales. During that competition, students voted on a non-profit organization to donate all their net profit. This semester’s non-profit donation is going to the Boys and Girls Club of Lowell.

Student businesses included t-shirts, face scrub, food, wallets, audio files, shoe cleaning, decorative pillows, and a painting service. More info about the businesses and competition here!

Congratulations to all the students who worked so hard!
Lowell Night Class Net Profit: $774
Bedford Day Class Net Profit: $1346
Students are donating a TOTAL of $2120 

Students also pitched at the MCC Shark Tank. Each class pitched their business, the work they did, and results to three guest judges.
