RHS Students Turn Love of Pets into a Business

Kudos to RHS students Sasha Farber, Ben Kim, Jason Liepper, and Michael Granoff!

They created WellPets as part of the youth entrepreneurship program called INCubatoredu and went on to win Roslyn's Pitch Night in May of 2021.

This led them to be interviewed over the summer by Uncharted Learning, who created the curriculum INCubatoredu. The article was just featured in the national educational publication eSchoolNews.

"I’m very proud to see all of our hard work be recognized and that it paid off," said Michael Granoff. "Incubator is definitely one of my favorite classes. It helps you with life skills you’ll need down the road.”

"I felt very accomplished and proud of myself when it was published," said Sasha Farber. "I felt like my hard work paid off."

Jason Liepper added, "This all feels like a dream. WellPets wasn’t even our first idea! The grit, determination, and passion all four of us put towards this idea was so tremendously worth it. I can't wait to see where WellPets ends up in the future!"

Ms. Jen DiPietro teaches the class. Ms. Wendy Brown serves as the team mentor.
