Ohio Business Week (OBW) is an exciting week-long residential business camp where high school students practice solving real world problems while having a real college experience!

During the week students are divided into companies with each company is led by a business pro, who will mentor the students throughout the week as they develop a unique product idea to solve a real-world problem. Speakers from various businesses and industries visit with the students, discussing topics that will help them craft their business, financial, and marketing plans. The program culminates in a presentation to business executives at the end of the week, when students pitch their ideas to prospective investors.

Company Advisors (CA) play the most critical role in each student's experience during the week. Every student company needs its advisor to guide them in developing their project, as well as acting as a mentor and coach in an often unfamiliar world. As a company advisor you will mentor your company of 10 - 12 students as they elect officers, create a company cheer and brainstorm ideas for a new product and transform that idea into a start-up business venture. Company advisors are asked to commit a full week of their time, Sunday to Saturday with all housing and meals provided.

The OBW CA program is one of the best professional development sessions available. All CAs participate in business seminars on current business topics, network with other business professionals, and enhance their time management, communication and mentoring/coaching skills. CAs rise to the challenge of getting their team of "future employees" moving in the right direction to accomplish their goals.

Description

Ohio Business Week (OBW) is an exciting week-long residential business camp where high school students practice solving real world problems while having a real college experience!

Since 1988 OBW has helped more than 6,000 graduates prepare for life and achieve success. During the innovative week students are divided into companies. Each company is led by a business pro, who will mentor the students throughout the week as they develop a unique product idea to solve a real-world problem. Consultants and speakers from various businesses and industries will visit with the students, discussing important topics that will help them craft their business, financial, and marketing plans. The program culminates in a presentation to business executives at the end of the week, when students pitch their ideas to prospective investors.

Students are immersed in entrepreneurial and business learning during the week and get the opportunity to meet inspiring people from across the state. They also get a preview of how it will be to work in a real-life, project-based team - from working with different personalities and work styles to learning leadership and entrepreneurship skills directly from business pros!

Participants also get a preview of what it will feel like to go to college by living in dorms and working in university facilities. Students forge friendships with other teens from all over Ohio. Students who are thinking about majoring in business will be able to explore career options during OBW.
