Strive

St. Andrew’s Episcopal School’s 12th-grade economics class attended the Southern Entrepreneurship Program’s STRIVE! symposium at the Jackson State University e-Center. Their “challenge task” was to conduct market research and to create and present a 30-second marketing and advertising pitch for a new type of coffeehouse/retail promotion before a panel of judges. The St. Andrew’s students who competed comprised Teams Seven and Eight among the 16 teams from roughly a dozen schools in the central Mississippi area. Team Seven promoted their concept of a fresh coffee delivery service utilizing drone technology, and their service was named “Sky Drip.” Team Eight promoted a walk-in coffee shop that also provides on-site college counseling services, with high school students comprising their target market, and named it “College Cups,” for which the team was awarded first place by the judges.
