What would your students do with a £100 start up fund?

The Merchant Adventurers are supporting enterprise in Primary Schools. 

“We believe that enterprise education should be available for all young people, helping them to explore and develop additional skills which will provide them with the maximum options for their future life and career, to the ultimate benefit of the local and regional economy”.

The Company of Merchant Adventurers of the City of York in partnership with NYBEP invite York Primary schools to take part in The Adventurers Challenge, a FREE 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…

Successful schools will be provided with a £100 start-up fund to turn their enterprise ideas, themed on celebrating Yorkshire, into reality. Any profits made can be kept by the school to fund future enterprise activity in your school.

All teams completing the challenge will be invited to a final to be held in May at The Merchant Adventurers’ Hall to share their business ideas with the judges made up of the York Merchant Adventurers.

Want to be involved? email us at events@nybep.org.uk or download the challenge and send us your ideas adventurers-challenge-booklet-dec-2016

Last year over £700 profit was made by three primary schools.
