There’s no doubt Serial Entrepreneur and CEO of Tasty Catering, Tom Walter, is a busy man. Beyond managing his company, he makes time to travel nationwide to participate in business entrepreneurship presentations and deliver leadership speeches. But there’s one other place he’s spending a good amount of time at — Elk Grove High School (EGHS). Among others, Walter is an active participant and mentor of EGHS’s Business Incubator program taught by Chad Froeschle.
The Business Incubator program is not your typical high school course. Students have the opportunity to develop business plans step-by-step and subsequently sit face-to-face with local business owners to receive critical feedback and advice.
Tom Walter has been involved since the beginning of the program. One of Elk Grove High School’s graduates and an employee of Tasty Catering, Jamie Pritscher, who just so happens to be an entrepreneur herself, encouraged him to be a mentor for the program.
