Fayetteville Academy Team Wins Entrepreneurial Award

For the first time, a team from Fayetteville Academy took part in The Young Entrepreneurship (TYE) program offered by The International Entrepreneurs (TIE) Carolinas, https://carolinas.tie.org/.

Aadit Mehta (CEO), Aiden Pitts, Robert Clayton, and Ethan Watson made up the team which represented our school. In a year-long program, they had to come up with a viable business model, build a business plan, complete with marketing plan, surveys, potential consumer analysis and more, and then present before a panel of distinguished national investors – like Shark Tank.

This past Saturday, they were awarded “The Best Prototype” for their 3D printed model of their gun safety gadget and Sanjay Achrya of TIE wrote, “The judges were highly impressed with the idea.”

Well done, Team A.R.E.A. Innovation!
