YEAR 11 BM EXPLORE FAMOUS ENTREPRENEURS!!!!
As part of Unit 1 Business Management students undertook extensive research and completed a formal presentation on a famous entrepreneur of choice. This entrepreneur had to have proven to find a way to solve consumer problems by creating and/or investing in a product or service that is new and innovative. Here are some student reflections and thoughts on this important learning task!

The Sac allowed us to learn about an entrepreneur and why they became so successful. It taught me what I would need to do to start my own business and make it profitable. I would recommend Year 11 Business Management for anyone interested in starting a business, becoming an entrepreneur, or just people who are generally interested in the subject.
We learned why many famous businesses such as Netflix and Amazon became so successful. We learned insights into successful business. Skills we learned are public speaking skills! Some positives were that the task was really fun, as we learned many interesting facts about business and their respective entrepreneurs!
The SAC overall allowed everyone to use their knowledge of Business Management terms and put it into a presentation.
This SAC gave us a better understanding of our learning in Business Management as we got to thoroughly explore entrepreneurship, innovation and businesses. I’ve really enjoyed BM so far and think it's an awesome subject that teaches you great life skills.
I’ve learnt important business-related knowledge that I’ll carry on forward in my life. The class is interactive, making learning fun. It’s definitely a subject worth taking!
It was fascinating hearing about all these businesses and entrepreneurs that I didn't know about or hadn't even heard of before! Everyone’s presentations that we viewed were really interesting and successful.
It was very interesting searching our entrepreneurs' backstory ie. as to why they started their business and their journey towards being successful and well known.
We covered the entrepreneur Kanye West and his brand Yeezys. This enabled us to understand and learn West's motivation, along with the history behind Yeezys. His controversy and the conclusion of his contract with Adidas was interesting!

We worked on Sam Bankman-Fried's crypto empire FTX. We got to learn about the qualities that made him so successful. I think analyzing the TLC and explaining the topics in great detail was fun.

We chose Michael Jordan (Jordan Brand). It was fun to learn about an entrepreneur who was a former athlete. It was also fun because we got to learn more about a topic that we are not familiar with. He was the best salesperson in the NBA.
Lurandt Wolmarans & Anthony Kostelac
It was good because we got an insight into what qualities entrepreneurs have. We did Toei Animation (Kenzo Masaoka). We got to learn about how Toei works and the history of the company and anime. It was interesting to learn how cell animation was used for the first time and revolutionized animation.

Our assignment was on Netflix. It is something that all of us use everyday and it was interesting researching about how it all started. We found by working in a group we get the work done quicker.
Christian Panoutsos & Anahita Madan
We did our assignment on Ingvar Kamprad, the founder of Ikea. He was an excellent innovator and had a strong work ethic. It was interesting to learn about his childhood. Interestingly, we discovered he was bribed to do well in school by his father, and that he isdyslexic.
Owen Taylor, Tiago Queiroz & Vanshdeep Sagwal
In Business Management we worked on an entrepreneur’s report and a power point presentation on Henry Ford and the Ford Motor company with Thomas Grove. We discovered that there were 15 million Ford Model-Ts produced and sold between 1908 to 1927.
