Phoenix, AZ, April 12, 2016: Metro Tech High School’s Business Department hosted an Entrepreneurship Panel. Juniors and seniors got a chance to see what it takes to open and own a business. The panel was asked a variety of questions about their businesses, and the students took notes and asked questions. The panel consisted of an array of company types ranging from a banking CEO to an owner of a skate boarding company. The following companies were represented on the panel: Renee Belisle, Owner, Clutter Rehab; Noelle Clark, Owner, Clark Heating & Cooling, LLC.; Jane Dobbs, President, Canyon State Credit Union; Frank Vanderzee, Owner, Legacy Roofing; Chuck Kelly, Franchise Owner, State Farm; Vickie Mullins, Author and Owner, Mullins Creative and Perfect Bound Marketing; Karen Vandehei, Owner, Accurate Placement; and Greg Rudolph, Founder and CEO, Board Blazers.

The high school students were enthralled with the panelists’ stories about their companies, how they got started and the hard work it takes to open a business. This experience will help the students realize what is involved with becoming an entrepreneur. Some topics covered included the importance of networking, financing, marketing, work hours, and being passionate about what you do.

The classes attending the panel discussion were Banking and Finance, Marketing, and Business Management. All of these students are leaning some aspect of their own curriculum from these business owners.
