The Company of Merchant Adventurers of the City of York in partnership with NYBEP would like to invite 20 Primary schools to take part in The Merchant Adventurers Challenge, a FREE business and enterprise challenge aimed at providing young people with an opportunity to explore and develop their enterprise skills such as team work, creativity, financial awareness, problem solving, and many more…
The challenge will be delivered by NYBEP as an half a day activity/part of a drop down day (or can be less to suit schools time limits) and supported by a Business person from The Merchants.
Students will work in small teams and be challenged to come up with a product, prototype or service that could help or benefit the local community and which can be sold and can make a profit. The winning idea from this session will receive £100 to bring their idea to life.
The challenge does not end there……the winning team are to use the £100 to bring their idea to life and turn this £100 into a profit.
Winning teams will be invited to showcase their idea and share their progress via a short presentation to the Business Community at a final to be held in July at The Merchant Adventurers Hall. All schools taking part keep the £100 plus any profit. Prizes for best ideas will be awarded at the Final. For further details of this exciting challenge please view the document attached.
