Romsey School Enterprise Project
Last week, Managing Director Wayne Palmer adopted his “dragon” instincts, by becoming a judge “Dragons Den Style” in the Romsey School Enterprise Project.
20 groups of Year 10 students were given the brief to create an innovative and profitable business. Choosing either a product, or service, the teams needed to conduct market research, identify branding and create a website. Once each team had presented their ideas to the judging panel, a shortlist of 6 teams would be chosen, with a final two teams then running their business idea in Romsey for a day, selling their innovation.
The winners of the competition were Bits & Bows, who made a profit of £390.96 (see photo, kindly provided by Romsey School). Wayne is no stranger to the contest, and has been lending his expertise to the project for the last eight years.”It’s great to be able to offer my support each year, giving these young people a glimpse of running a business and what they could achieve by it is a real pleasure”.
Well done to all the students who took part in the event.
