Dear Division 16,
For this week’s blog assignment, I would like you to imagine that you had a grant of $25,000 (this is money that was given to you) to start a company.
If this happened to you, for your response, answer the following questions:
1. What kind of company would you start? What product or services would you make / sell / offer? Give your company a name. It can be a non-profit organization if you choose.
2. When, in your life, would you begin this company? Give the age you would be when it started and the reasons for your answer.
3. If you could start this company with anyone, who would you start it with? (Remember to just use first initial and ***)
4. Where (which city or country) would you start your business? Why?
For example, I would start a company that sold different types of exotic plants. This would help people build rainforests in their backyards without any of the cost or risks of traveling to the rainforest. I would research which plants could survive and keep them in a greenhouse. I would grow my own plants and store them using the grant money, and customers could pick them out and transplant them. My company would be called Thony plants (a pun because it looks like Thorny).
I would start this when I was 22 because since I would have started in life, my Dad could give me advice because his family has a history of growing things. I would start my company with my Dad and run it with my family. My company would be started in Alberta because in Alberta it gets pretty cold and you don’t see very much tropical life.
I look forward to your responses!
