Lilly Thompson, Katisha Webb and Montana McFarlane pitched their School Run business to potential investors at the fourth annual Bond University Demo Day on Wednesday 15 November. The girls did themselves and Somerset College proud.

The group spoke with confidence and enthusiasm, impressing members of the Gold Coast business community, who were in attendance. A College parent at the event summed up the girls' presentation as follows:

2017 - T4 - W8 - demo day

"The Bond University Demo Day provided Lilly, Katisha and Montana an amazing opportunity to pitch their School Run entrepreneurial project. What an interesting and exciting evening it was! I was impressed with the eloquence and confidence with which the girls pitched their business idea and interacted with other business developers and Bond University staff and alumni. It was a very good opportunity for the girls to hone their public speaking and networking skills as well as meet people who may be able to help them with the development of their product."

The girls are working with Blue Lens Consulting to develop their School Run business as a result of winning the Bond University Turbo Charged Startup Course in Entrepreneurship Pitch Competition at the Somerset Celebration of Entrepreneurship. Thanks again to the Somerset Alumni Association for providing the girls with $3000 in seed capital to start their business.
