FUSE x LOWER MAINLAND
FEB - MAR 2019
MARCH 8TH, 2019
FUSE x Lower Mainland was a program focused on improving the business literacy of high school students in the Lower Mainland. It was a collaboration between FUSE and various business classes in different high schools across Vancouver, Burnaby, and Surrey. This year, we were able to collaborate with David Thompson, Tupper, Burnaby North, and North Surrey. Students in those classes formed teams and had one month to tackle a case study produced by FUSE.
During this time, FUSE executives came in to present and teach business lessons to all participating schools. These lessons included business models/analytical tools, as well as case competition tips.
At the end of the one month work period, students presented their findings to a panel of experienced judges, much like a real case competition. On March 8th, 2019, the inaugural FUSE x Lower Mainland Final Competition was held at Windermere Secondary. Our goal with this project was to impact as many youths as possible in the Lower Mainland, increase business literacy, and deliver a memorable experience that will progress the personal and professional growth of these students.
