Elmont Memorial High School’s Virtual Enterprise class recently participated in the 2023 Long Island Regional Conference and Exhibition at Long Island University.

VE is a business class where students work together to create a virtual business from scratch. The class not only creates the idea for the company but is also responsible for creating all the components that support a business: accounting, sales, marketing, human resources and IT departments – all staffed by members of the class.

Elmont’s virtual business is Pro-Fit, a health and fitness company that designs and personalizes monthly boxes that cater to the needs of its clients. They competed against classes from across Long Island and earned Gold in the Newsletter, Sales Material and Booth Design Competitions.
