Ishan Vanjara promotes the Blue Ocean Competition to his high school entrepreneurship club

Ishan Vanjara of West Windsor-Plainsboro High School North in Plainsboro, NJ is a past participant and now part of the student executive committee for the competition.
Ishan can be seen, in these images, introducing the Blue Ocean Competition to his high school entrepreneurship club: He is showing his club’s members how to navigate the Blue Ocean website as well as how to register and make use of the Blue Ocean Strategy Course once they register. He is also teaching them about pinpointing a Blue Ocean Solution and how to create a Blue Ocean, which will serve as a foundation for the lessons he has planned on utilizing the Blue Ocean Strategy tools to effectively create a business pitch. This lesson structure will start being taught in January once club members have had enough time to brainstorm their Blue Ocean business idea/solution.
Within the executive committee, he primarily works on high school outreach and program training as well as some of the new developments they will be rolling out, such as a Youtube alumni spotlight series and the “Tip of the Day” videos on the Blue Ocean Competition Instagram. As a participant of this competition, he’s learned so much about being an entrepreneur and what it means to turn a business idea into a working solution in an uncontested marketplace, while making any perceived competition irrelevant by creating a Blue Ocean. As part of the executive committee, he’s excited to continue providing resources for all participants so that they can apply these Blue Ocean concepts to their business ideas and effectively pitch a “Blue Ocean Solution” to the judges.
