Young enterprise - September 15th 2011, 04:17 PM

Hey guys.

So my school are taking part in this thing called young enterprise and I've put my name forward to possibly participate. It sounds pretty interesting and I'm hoping it will be an enjoyable experience. I was just wondering if anyone else has ever done it, or considered doing it if it was offered at your school? It's a bit commitment and I just want to know if it's worth it I guess.

For those of you who don't know what it is, it's basically this thing where you and a group of people from your school set up a company, and sell a product of service. It's a real company. You make real money. And you're in competition with schools from all over the place. It's pretty good for CVs and UCAS apparently.

So yeah, if you've got any advice or suggestions for me I'd love it!

Thanks in advance,
Hollie.

I has done it It was compulsery for our year during activities week!
It was fun We got split from our friends so at 1st it was scary and I didn't start talking or doing anything until after break but it was good when I became calm again Although ours was more small scale
We had to do it all in one day and didn't get to actually take our ideas to market. Just make sure your role is good I had finance which was good as I like maths But if I had design I would have failed and hated it!

This sounds more like the Lionheart challenge?
What I'm on about takes place over like a year or something.
You literally set up a company and do the service or sell the product. you have a bank account, an advisor...everything.
I did the Lion heart challenge in year 10.
