Floral Park’s VE Students Place at Regional Conference

The Virtual Enterprise students from Floral Park Memorial took part in their first-ever Long Island Regional Conference and Exhibition at SUNY Farmingdale on Jan. 9.

The VE students represented their firm Zaropa, an online shopping and styling service that focuses on shoes. Based on the shoe style chosen, an outfit is generated for the client, creating an easy, personalized way to styling. The group took part in different competitions, networked with other firms and business leaders, and made sales, sales, sales! Students delivered a sales pitch, set up a booth to represent their firm and participated in the oral portion of the Business Plan Challenge.

The Zaropa team was excited to place second for Best Salesmanship and Best Company Newsletter. The team enjoyed the experiential learning day aimed at career-readiness and entrepreneurial enterprise, and is looking forward to competing in its next trade show in New York City.
