A pair of classes from Bethpage High School represented the district at the Virtual Enterprise Entrepreneurship and Leadership Conference on Oct. 19 at the LIU Post Tilles Center. Transforming their classes into business, one of the groups earned finalist honors following a full day of pitches and networking. 

Each company from Bethpage was represented by individuals from the class to deliver a sixty-second elevator pitch to the judges and audience. Senior David Campos spoke on behalf of MiSport while senior Andrew Sapuppo delivered a presentation on STEALTH. Dressed in business professional attire, each senior pitched to the judges on why their companies would be the one to invest in as entrepreneurial projects.

Sapuppo was able to help STEALTH move on to the finalist round with a stellar presentation while Campos also made his group proud with a exceptional pitch. STEALTH was one of 13 companies out nearly 90 in the competition to make it to the final round.

The VE Entrepreneurship and Leadership Conference is open to all VE high school students in Long Island. Students have the opportunity to deliver an elevator pitch regarding their companies in addition to networking with industry experts and successful entrepreneurs. Part of the conference is also dedicated to informative and exciting breakout sessions.

The conference was the first of three competitions the two classes will participate in this year. Under the direction of teachers Anthony Murray and Nancy Simpson as well as Business Department Coordinator and Assistant Principal Kevin Healy, the students are able to learn skills such as personal finance, entrepreneurial, networking and presentation among many other through this course.

Principal Nicholas Jantz and the entire district salute these students for a job well done and look forward to the growth of these companies throughout the year!
