Coral Springs High School Student Wins First Place in the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship’s BizPlan Competition

From: Broward County Public Schools

Coral Springs High School student, Jason Ramadan, won first place in the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship’s (NFTE) BizPlan Competition at the eMerge Americas Conference in Miami Beach. Jason impressed the crowd at the conference with his newly created game, “Cliff Fall,” which is already a successful gaming app on the iOS platform.

Jason received a $1,500 prize from MasterCard for winning first place after giving an eight-minute presentation in front of a panel of judges, and answering their questions about his idea.

The gaming app created by Jason differs from competitor games currently on the iOS platform because the game offers personalization, a variety of skill levels, and the option to hide any advertising.

Jason has always dreamed of having his own business and in October, Jason will continue on to compete with his business plan in the national competition in New York for a chance to win the grand prize of $25,000.

Jason is a class of 2015 graduate and will further his education at Florida Atlantic University in the fall.
