Farmington High School this year began an innovative business program this year to help juniors and seniors start their own businesses.
Business instructor Christy Pierce launched the INCubatoredu curriculum with 12 students.
“I taught entrepreneurship where we did business plans, the big 30-40 page documents,” she said. “That’s beginning to be more a thing of the past.
"That was all fictitious and this is real. INCubatoredu is a real program based out of Chicago where students are creating actual, real businesses in hopes of pitching — there will be two formal pitches — to a board of directors in hopes of getting the seed money to take this business further.”
