This highlight video features the Da Vinci Charter Academy 2017 Dragons' Den from December 16, 2017.
Dragons' Den is an event where 23 student teams create a viable small business for Davis and produce five- to 10-minute pitches to "Dragons"- asking for investments in their businesses in return for a share in the company. This is a business fair type event, where judges proceed to each groups booth.
Video was produced by Davis Media Access, with Amin Muhammed as videographer.
From the Davis Enterprise:
"The students produced full business plans that included everything from a description of key products to the cost of doing business, market analysis, advertising and more. They even scouted out locations in and around town where their businesses could rent space.
All of the school’s seniors participate in the five-week project as part of their economics class, learning both the fundamentals of economics as well as entrepreneurship through the process.
The student event is patterned on the reality show of the same name that originated in Japan, with entrepreneurs pitching their business ideas to venture capitalists. The show spawned similar television shows around the world, including “Shark Tank” in the United States."
