BiG Challenge and Young Entrepreneurs Club
The Sheffield Enterprise Programme is committed to raising awareness of running a business from an early age:
- Now in its sixth year, teams from across Sheffield’s secondary schools and colleges have the opportunity to win a fully paid 5 star overseas trip.
- Each team has to make as much profit as possible on an initial £25 cash investment, using any legal means.
- Each team requires a member of staff to support its entry and is helped by local business and university volunteers.
- Sponsorship for the trip is provided by DLA Piper. BiG Challenge 5 winners were awarded a once in a lifetime trip to DLA Piper in Dubai.
Young Entrepreneurs Club
- A business network for teenagers aged 14-19 who are interested in business – whether that’s starting a business, studying business, apprenticeship or just making the most of their interests.
- Students take part in fun coaching activities, hear from local business people, get involved in a members board and visit top businesses around the country.
- The club has helped several young entrepreneurs on their business journey with a number of its members winning prestigious young enterprise awards.
