Buffalo Grove High School programs and the Micro Internship program

Buffalo Grove Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce partnered with High School District 214 to provide invaluable experience for two District 214 students through micro internships last summer. Supervised by Adriane Johnson, Chamber President, students were given a marketing research project and presented results to the Chamber Board. The experience provided students the opportunity to exhibit and strengthen research, leadership, technology communication and presentation skills.

In addition, Chamber members and 214 worked collaboratively on a College Entrepreneurship program. Throughout this hands-on, dual credit honors course, students ideate, develop, and iterate their own product or service startup in an attempt to gain investment funds. Entrepreneurs and business experts serve as volunteer mentors guiding student teams through developing hypotheses about a business concept, testing hypotheses, adapting, and continually improving. Students leave the course with a completed Business Model Canvas, competitive analysis, financial model, minimum viable product, pitch deck, communications plan, and future funding plan.

Buffalo Grove’s Shark Tank for Kids

A new three-way collaboration launched in May 2019 as the Raupp Museum, Longfellow School and the BGL Chamber of Commerce participated in Buffalo Grove’s first ever Shark Tank for Kids event. The museum taught third-grade students about invention and innovation, Longfellow teachers guided their classes in completing project displays and pitch speeches, and Chamber members served as judges at a gala kickoff event on May 28 at the Raupp Museum. Over 150 attended as teams of students presented their ideas, and 12 teams were chosen as winners.
