Entrepreneurship Student Receives Award for Innovative Business Solution

September 10, 2018

  • Divyesh Award

Entrepreneurship student, Divyesh K. attended the University of Houston's’ EXPLORE Business Summer Institute hosted by the Bauer College of Business this summer.

In this immersive experience, Divyesh was able to attend lectures regarding leadership strategies and employee engagement as well as take on a real-world business situation for Academy Sports and Outdoors.

“The lectures there were some the most captivating I have ever attended, despite being well over 2 hours,” Divyesh said. “I learned a lot about how engaged employees can improve a company's bottom line. More than that, however, I learned how I could apply this information as a leader, by understanding my leadership style and how I could leverage it to engage my peers within an organization.”

Students were challenged to improve employee engagement, especially against the backdrop of booming online marketplaces. Divyeshs’ team of 4 presented a detailed strategy focused on gamification and improving break-time experiences to boost employee engagement to corporate employees of the company.

Their hard work was rewarded with a second-place win for the team and recognition from company officials.

“I came away from the camp not just with the knowledge of employee engagement and all of its benefits,” Divyesh said. “But also with real-life skills and a network of equally driven high school students across the nation.”

Divyesh brings this knowledge back to The Village School Entrepreneurship program with founding partners Bridges to Wealth. He is pursuing an Entrepreneurship Diploma with the class of 2020.
