An Update on the Sheboygan Area School District InCubator Program

The Sheboygan Area School District has been a part of a experiential learning program called INCubatorEDU for the past two years.  It is a collaborative program between the business community and schools, where students participate in an authentic entrepreneurship experience by developing a real product or service startup.  They identify a problem, examine the market and customer for their idea, validate the solution they create, and then run it through lean product development so they can finally pitch for real investment dollars.  This year, six teams presented business ideas and four teams received funding.  Two have committed to launching their business after the final pitch event.
