OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss (OSSD) -- Members of the media, community, and local business owners joined Ocean Springs School District for a ribbon cutting and open house of the newly-added INCubatorEdu program, the first of its kind in Mississippi on Tuesday! 
The INCubatorEdu, a program just added to OSHS in January, offers an authentic entrepreneurship experience for students interested in a future career in business. Students spend a semester working alongside local entrepreneurs and business coaches, who serve as their mentor as they progress through the program. Students learn through the startup process of development, business concept, product testing, and rollout. By course completion, the students will create and present a business product or service to a panel of judges, similar to “Shark Tank.”
To celebrate the ceremonial launch of the program, the students were joined by the Ocean Springs Chamber-Main Street, WLOX News, local business owners, and district administration.
