Wall Street and the Business World 101

This course will be an opportunity for students to learn about the financial industry, particularly Wall Street and the Stock Market, as well as other financial fields. Through real-world simulations and hands on exercises, students will delve into the stock market and explore its various tenets. Participation in industry analysis, creating their own portfolio, and simulating trading sessions would be the crux of the Winterim. Students will develop a formal presentation that explains their reasons for investment selections, including a detailed financial analysis of at least one Fortune 500 Company. The Winterim will also include a trip to NYC and a possible tour of the trading floor. Experts from the financial/business industry will also be providing lectures and discussions. We will spend a few days discussing what it takes to open up and run a small business from scratch. Participants will be exposed to the small business world within Litchfield County and learn the basics of being a small business owner.


Business Plan Creation

As part of the Winterim, students are tasked with creating a business and writing a plan:



Company overview

Hi-tech means Home improvement technology. We will be selling indoor and outdoor systems for doors. The outdoor systems will open by handprint activated that will be run on a software that will be able to add handprints and remove handprints. The systems can be used by bluetooth from the Hi-tech app the outdoor system can be opened by pets with a rfid tag on the collar. The indoor system can be open by motion sensor placed within 10ft of the door. The system can work during power outages by batteries that will be able to run for 3 week at time. We will be able to make money by selling the product to senior homes,people who are disabled,and people with pets.


Company stages

The first year we will measure success by how many units get sold per month. The first month will just be about get advertising and get people to notice Hi-tech. The months following will be about working with nursing homes and getting companies to partner up with Hi-tech. We will need to get licenses for nursing homes and the batteries to make sure they don’t catch on fire and we will get a patined for the product. We will also find the amount it will cost to run per month to pay employees. Hi-tech will work with U.S manufacturers to make more jobs.  Hi tech will be on amazon because 80% of online orders on are through amazon.


Product details
