On the 9th and 10th of March 2017, Biz World took place in Scoil Mhuire, Carrick on Shannon, Co Leitrim. A lady named Catherine Murray from the Bank of Ireland came to us to encourage us to become entrepreneurs.  Biz World was a 5th Class initiative which we had to take part in.

We had to present our business ideas to the dragons. It’s basically the same thing as the show Dragons Den.  The biggest success was “Visual Tech”.  The other businesses were “Boiler Bottle”, “Megagrade” and the “Colt”.  We had to present our products to 4th Class.  4th Class saw a lot of flaws, but they were very honest with their opinions.

During Biz World, we learned a lot about business and people who work in business including the role of managers, marketing, design, sales, profits and advertising.

In general it was a lot of fun. We would like to do this again.
