Amr Gawad, Parent and President of True Engineering
“Based upon my observations of the materials and activities utilized in the Entrepreneur Program at WPS along with the Entrepreneurship events held at the school, I am extremely proud and feel so fortunate to have my daughter Fatima be part of such an educational program. Preparing our students at a younger age to be ready for real world experiences will produce a generation of leaders and thinkers capable of making sound business decisions in any career they may choose to pursue. As a parent and a businessman, I strongly support this program and stand ready to help in its success and continuation in anyway I can.”
Ryan King, Student and Founder & CEO of King Drone Services LLC
“I didn’t realize how important the things that we learned in his class were until I launched a company that I conceptualized in his class into the real market. I then was able to take everything I had learned from the class and grow my business, King Drone Services LLC, into a profitable company. This course was truly life changing for me. It has helped me realize that entrepreneurship is what I wish to pursue in college. I am grateful to have Mr. Conroy as my mentor and appreciate everything he has and continues to teach me.”
Sidney Azambuja, Parent
“Exposing young talent to real world business challenges is a great way to drive innovation and adaptiveness, which are key to business success. I truly recommend this workshop to anyone interested in developing business management skills!”
James Hunter, Executive Vice President and General Counsel for Marriott Vacations Worldwide Corporation WPS Parent and member of the ES Advisory Council
"One of the things that distinguishes American business from the rest of the world is the opportunity for entrepreneurship. Some of the world's most successful inventions and businesses have their roots here, and I am excited to see Windermere Prep embrace entrepreneurship as part of its curriculum. The earlier students can get exposed to the principles and practice of creating their own businesses, the better prepared they will be when they get out in the real world to pursue opportunities of their own."
Nato Hureuse, Owner of Turning Heads Barber
"I wish there were more programs like this in the school system as this is knowledge that teaches students something that is actual useful in the real world. I think many students or business owners can greatly benefit from this amazing program. I know if this program were available to me when I was a student or even now, I would be a better entrepreneur and owner. I really had no expectation out of this program. However, I was very impressed with what the program had to offer and how knowledgeable those students were."
Tony Lahnston, COO of Tropical Foods
“I was happy to help with the growth of his students and opened our doors to his program. What I didn’t expect was to work with such an empowered group of students that not only learned something from participating in this project, but helped me to wrap my arms around real, workable solutions to a big challenge facing our company. These students presented some well thought out ideas to shift our sales mix in favor of our manufactured items away from our distributed items. And that was the challenge! I never expected that they could do what our own sales people could not do: come up with great ideas to solve our problem. I was both shocked and very impressed with this program.”
Alex Mealey, Student and SGA President
"The Entrepreneurship Program granted me the opportunity to gain authentic business skills while working with real business owners on problems being faced in the real world. The curriculum of this class was far different from any other High School class. However, the class was considerate of my IB Diploma schedule, with most of the work being done in class. This allowed me to balance my schedule with rigorous academic courses while continuing to learn about the world of business through the Entrepreneurship Program.”
