Student Entrepreneurs Open Student Store

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Dashiell Sarnoff and Jeffrey Efting talk about their student store project.

While Cogswell makes sure our students understand the theory and fundamentals behind what they are doing, its main focus is on giving students the opportunity to put that theory into practice through project-based learning. Dashiell Sarnoff took the “Basic Building Blocks of Entrepreneurship” class and decided his class project would be to open a student store called, “The Cogswell Armory.” After Jeffrey Efting took the class and became a partner in the project.

From its humble beginnings in a corner of the Associated Student Office, then relocated to a storage closet, the store now has its own room. Listen in to this short video as Dashiell and Jeffrey share what they learned in the process in this short video. Listen in as they talk about the decisions they made to take the store from a tiny corner in the ASB office to a room of its own and the things they needed to consider to make it work.
