Community members are invited to learn more about Batavia High School’s INCubator Entrepreneurship Program at an informational and networking event with local business owners and professionals involved with the program from 6 to 8 p.m. on Dec. 2 at Penrose Brewing Co. at 509 Stevens St., Geneva.
This is the fourth year of the program, which is taught by Batavia High School teacher and head football coach Dennis Piron. Tickets to the event are $50, which includes food, two beverages, a souvenir glass, brewery tour, as well as the opportunity to explore what the program has to offer high school students.
Funds raised for the INCubator program will be used for classroom upgrades, seed money to help students develop their products and services and a year-end “Pitch Night,” where students present their projects to business professionals at the Batavia Fine Arts Centre.
“The INCubator program offers BHS students an authentic entrepreneurship experience,” said Brian Gamlin, BHS Divisional Coordinator for STEM and Director of INCubator. “Working in teams, students create and fully develop their own product or service with help from local business owners and their classroom instructor.”
