MarinSEL 11th Grade Businesses 
 

Every fall, MarinSEL juniors are tasked with writing a sustainable business plan, which they pitch to a panel of mock investors. Eight of the most promising businesses were selected for spring-time implementation. 

Businesses worldwide are still recovering from the economic impacts of the pandemic, all the while others were forced to close their doors. In true MarinSEL fashion, students have impressed with their entrepreneurial spirit, agile resourcefulness and community service. During this challenging time, students will continue to learn about adaptability as an indispensable element to a successful business model. 
 
We applaud the students for their ingenuity and work ethic, and encourage the community to support them as they forge on!
