A group of Maine-Endwell students created Sparta Products as part of a Junior Achievement Project. the students announced to the community business leaders who served as mentors that their company raised over $4000. The students sold products including drawstring bags and rally towels.
"It was a lot of hard work and I'm not gonna lie-- everybody was stressing out for the past week. We just wanted to make the company loko good. But it was a great experience and we really learned how to work together," said Madeline Flesher, CEO of Sparta Products.
"Our hope is they go out and understand a little bit more about business. Some of them will eventually own a business. Probably all of them will use the skills: speaking in public, selling, working together," said Kevin BLAKE, President of ICS solutions.
The students donated $1000 of their profit to local charities.
