New Visions Students create successful, profitable start-up

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - A successful student-run start-up issued its final report Thursday.

Fourteen students from our region gave a presentation Thursday on the business they created through the Broome Tioga BOCES New Visions Business Academy.

The company, called "14 Visions" raised money through investors, assigned themselves positions, and produced and sold two consumer products, a 3 in 1 phone case and a car organizer.

The students completed the project having sold all 250 units for a profit of over $2,300.

Chenango Valley Senior RJ Santa Croce says the experience helped him with his organizational and communication skills.

"You get to start up your own company at the age of 18.  And you get to make a profit out of it.  We actually get paid to come to school.  We get a salary, we get bonuses, we get commission.  So, we're making money to come to school and do what we like to do.  The best experience I've ever done with my schooling career," said Croce.

The New Visions Academy is taught by Julie Keenan as part of the Junior Achievement program of the Greater Binghamton Chamber.
