Welcome to the website for the St Stephen Secondary School courseĀ 
'Venture Planning in an Electronic Age"

This course provides students with the opportunity to develop and apply entrepreneurial skills through the creation of a venture plan with an emphasis on the potential of e-commerce. Students will examine and evaluate the opportunities and challenges of doing business on the Internet. They will also research and identify an opportunity for a venture. They will then complete the components of a venture plan that includes a website. Issues such as choosing an ethical business or venture, fair treatment of customers and clients, the dignity of the employee, the value of work, and sharing of profits with society are all examined. Students will be encouraged to make ethical decisions and act morally and justly. This course will also review business concepts relating to the classification of businesses, business and economic cycles, and business opportunities and ideas. We will also focus on the human, physical and financial components of business ventures.
