2013 summer camp was a learning experience of new skills that would prepare young entrepreneurs for the competitive world. Parafruit Education partnership with the African Heritage really empowered students to think of unique ways to market and pitch their idea to potential investors. The match was a win situation for the students that learned a skill in the arts. In addition students that participated in Parafruit Education 7 weeklong business plan pitch at the African Heritage were able to compete and win start up VISA cards and Gift cards. Competing to be the best, the class of 30th students really demonstrated their passion for their business. The bottom line of this event came down to the top three winners.

1st place Dasha Bostic, age 17 and business title “I Support my Heritage”

2nd place Ayanna Johnson, age 12 and business title “ Young Generation Dance Academy

3rd place Dynesty Andrews, age 14 and business title “ Paradise Falls”

I would like to thank all the participants that made this possible and the parents that worked with us on the business pitch event.
