Barrington High School’s inaugural Business Start-Up Incubator class has produced over two dozen exciting and extremely promising new business concepts with classmates working together toward a pot of gold that awaits at the end of the school year. 124 BHS sophomores and juniors are taking part in this year’s course with teams of about five students behind each new business concept.

The class will culminate with a “Pitch Week” and a public event on Wednesday, May 28th, when students will have the opportunity to promote their business idea to a non-profit, private-equity group as well as investors and venture capitalists. At least one student business will be funded, receiving a significant financial investment toward making their business a reality.
