Cape Cod students win entrepreneurship contest with business ideas

BARNSTABLE — Younger folks can master a good deal at Barnstable Substantial College: how to solve an algebra dilemma, how to browse DNA code and how to make sense out of literary classics. Some learners are even mastering what it usually takes to start a small business.  

In a competition similar to TV’s “Shark Tank” — where business people try out to convince a panel of tycoons to invest in their idea — college students recently pitched their company suggestions to a panel of judges.

Rising from the pack on June 14 were Nicholas Pouliot and Dominic Ford, who received prizes at a New England semi-remaining level of competition for younger business people. 

The opposition was sponsored by the Network for Instructing Entrepreneurship, or NFTE, a world nonprofit group that gives entrepreneurship education and learning to middle and high school learners.

Barnstable High School students Nicholas Pouliot, left, and Dominic Ford won second and third place, respectively, in the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship New England Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge in Boston on June 14, 2022. Pouliot will advance to NFTE’s National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge in New York this fall, where he will compete against students from across the country

What were the Barnstable students’ tips?

Pouliot came up with programs for a biodegradable, reusable marker for teachers to use in classrooms.

The strategy for “Pouliot’s Preservation” arrived to him after noticing how a lot of markers teachers threw absent. The marker would have a particular cap and again structure so the marker could be refurbished, he reported. 

Pouliot gained $1,000 and a chance to compete in a nationwide NFTE levels of competition to be held in New York Town in Oct.
