Andover's Young Entrepreneurs

Last year I was invited by my son's math teacher, Deb Freilich at West Middle School, to be one of the 5 judges to judge the class's Shark Tank competition.  Twelve groups/individuals of 7th grade boys and girls made it to the finals. 

The students had to come up with an idea/product and present it to a panel of judges.  They used Powerpoint presentations showing their cost/profit analysis and did skits to present their products. A few even made commercials.  There were so many amazing ideas. The top 2 Shark Tank Winners were 4 girls.   

I met with the girls along with their mom's and teacher this summer to discuss packaging, display and marketing. They worked on perfecting their products to have them ready to sell in the store this month. 

I am happy to announce that Aroma Therapy ($7/bottle) and 
M&S Dogelicious Treats ($6/pkg) are available for purchase at SoleAmour.
All proceeds from sales go directly to the girls who have decided to donate a portion of their sales to Great Dog Rescue and The MSPCA
