JUNIOR SHARK TANK - REPORT

HFS INTERNATIONAL, POWAI

    JUNIOR SHARK TANK-PLAN, PRESENT, PITCH

“Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won't so you can spend the rest of your lifelike most people can’t.”


Exams are finally over but the learning has not stopped in HFSI CAIE Primary. With a perspective to develop an entrepreneurial mind-set in the young minds of Primary School Students, ‘Jr. SHARK TANK’- an event to promote innovation and entrepreneurship, was initiated by Hiranandani Foundation School International, Mumbai. Riding on the wave of entrepreneurship and keeping in mind the Honorable Prime Minister’s initiative ‘Start-up India’, this event was conducted on 10th and 11th April 2023.

Learners of grade 3, 4 and 5 pitched their unique and life changing ideas. They made extensive presentations and explained why their ideas were viable, marketable and feasible. The young learners also experienced what goes in the mind of the ‘sharks’ when they get an opportunity to chair one pitch each. One by one all the young entrepreneurs took over and created magic. They learnt new financial terms like valuation, gross profit, business plan, pitch, investment etc. Each pitch had to come up with a market value, in a time limit of 3 minutes for individual and 5 minutes for group pitches. Their par perfect negotiation, oratory and convincing skills were the highlight of the event.

Savvanah – a home-made skin care brand with 4 co- founders from grade 5 B found way to our principal, Mrs. Kalyani Patnaik’s heart while she graced the event with her presence. She tried the product herself and was impressed with the idea. Falcon Drones by a team of grade 5 C planned the future of home deliveries with their new technology high security drones that could make deliveries lightening fast. An entrepreneur from Grade 4 came up with the idea of Shaazem, a product you wish you had when you were a child playing soccer all day! Some of the ideas shared by young students were surprisingly beyond expectations. We at HFSI, have always believed in encouraging students to think out of the box. Activities like these enable children to think ahead of their time, based on their own observations and mould them for the future. This bold and exemplary move was a success with so many young real-time innovators.
