Morgan Park Academy’s Summer Business Incubator class recently held a Pitch Day featuring five upper-school students who came up with small-business ideas and created comprehensive business plans in an intensive, four-week summer session. After identifying a problem or opportunity that a business could solve, students designed a company and product; conducted an analysis of their industry, location and revenue model; and presented detailed business plans to visiting experts. The ideas included a youth baseball training facility, a digital tablet for artists, a cartoon-themed restaurant for Naperville nostalgists, a new spin on piano lessons in Beverly, and a luxury building of small apartments for young adults in University Village. The class, taught by Beverly resident Hallie Fahey, included freshman Justin Harris; sophomores Rory Desmond, of Beverly, and Tiffany Chen; and juniors Tyler Brisard, of Beverly, and Sabrina Eng.
