Culminating Final Project: Pitch It!

This textbook concludes with a culminating final project called Pitch It!. In this mini-simulation, students utilize their information technology skills as they work in teams to create a new product and introduce it to the market.

Pitch It! Scenario:

As young entrepreneurs, students are required to research and develop a variety of documents that they will use to support and "pitch" their idea to the CEO of Pitch It!, Inc. (the teacher), similar to that of the popular reality TV show, "Shark Tank." Students will ultimately experience exactly what happens in the real world where aspiring entrepreneurs create "elevator pitches" to potential investors. The goal of this final project is simple: To have Pitch It!, Inc. hear and love the students' ideas so that they receive the necessary financial backing to bring their product to market.
