Another year of Young Enterprise success
21 June 2019
Congratulations to this year’s Young Enterprise team Ciao.
The group of Year 12 students have had a very busy year running their own company producing bespoke cloth bags. The girls worked as a team to bring the product to market, carrying out research, overseeing the manufacture, developing a marketing strategy before selling their products in school and at the trade fair in Birmingham city centre.
Ciao recently competed in the Birmingham and Solihull regional finals of the nationwide competition hosted by Arup in Solihull. They were asked to submit their company report, set up their trade stand, have interviews with the judges and give a presentation in front of the other competing teams, Young Enterprise business advisors and a judging panel comprising of representatives from Arup and local business support networks.
We are delighted to announce that they won two awards: for Marketing and Best Trade Stand at the Birmingham Trade Fair.
The students were very professional throughout and the judges were impressed with all aspects of their business venture. Well done!
