Metro high school students compete in Shark Tank

Students from seven Metro Nashville high schools gathered Nov. 20 at the JA Teen Business Shark Tank competition at the Nashville Entrepreneur Center with Junior Achievement of Middle Tennessee and sponsored by the Phoenix Club of Nashville and the EC.

The 60 students who participated in the Shark Tank are enrolled in the JA Company Program, an in-depth program that prepares high school students for the real world by teaching them how to develop their own business venture. Students work as a team to conceptualize, capitalize, operate and manage their company.

Sessions are led and advised by business mentors from top Nashville area companies. The Shark Tank was another opportunity for the students to raise capital to get their respective businesses off the ground.
