Business Plan for “Fish with Purpose” wins International School Enterprise Challenge


Ocean Academy Fly Fishing students won first place in North America and the Caribbean for their business plan submission to the School Enterprise Challenge. 1250 schools from 83 countries participated this year. Ocean Academy’s business idea is called “Fish with Purpose”. Students will sell hand-made flies, rent rods to visitors, and share their fishing knowledge about the island’s best spots, while also being eco-ambassadors for catch-and-release conservation. Profits will support student fees, stipends and the school scholarship fund. The School Enterprise Challenge is organized by Teach A Man To Fish, who provide entrepreneurship curriculum and support to schools worldwide.
