Firms Participate in April 19 Video Conference

Four CSBS firms and two firms from Kuopio, Finland made presentations about their firms in a recent video conference. The firms that participated were: B-Gone Travel and Switchin Tempo (Mercer County Community College, NJ); EM Sports (Northcentral Technical College, WI); Favor It, Inc. (Passaic Valley High School, NJ); and Lentavat-Flying Carpets and Petex (Savo Vocational College, Finland). During the three-hour conference, each firm had the opportunity to make a presentation about their firm and/or make a sales presentation. There was a question and answer time following each presentation. This was a great success-teachers had an opportunity to discuss some teaching techniques and best practices, and the students had a chance to learn about the business of other firms as well as some of the differences between the U.S. and Finland. Look for more of these opportunities in the fall.
