SLIDESHOW: Business Incubator Students Compete at District 211 Pitch Night


Student teams from Palatine, Fremd, Conant, Schaumburg, and Hoffman Estates High Schools’ Business Incubator classes competed hard in District 211’s very first “shark tank” event.

The best teams from each school were selected to compete at the District Pitch Night for real funding. The groups presented business ideas to community “sharks” for seed money to start real businesses. Palatine High School’s DeoTech, which consists of students Kosta Plevritis, Anthony Portera, Drake Roberts, and Anthony Tamras, were the winners and earned $25,000 in seed money for their company from the District 211 Foundation.
