Recently, high school students enrolled in the Virtual Enterprise class attended their first tradeshow at Hofstra University, showcasing their trendy clothing company. They named the company PORT Clothing, after Northport.

Virtual Enterprise classes prepare students to work in a real corporate environment by teaching them to create and set up businesses. With teacher and business-partner guidance, students engage in the daily operations of running a business. The Virtual Enterprise Program has the added advantage of linking students in a global business network of 7,500 firms across 42 countries.

At this event, students from 12 Long Island firms conducted business with one another, made sales, and practiced their sales pitches for the upcoming tradeshows in January and April.
