BGF sponsors the Young Enterprise Tenner Challenge, a nationwide competition that gives these children a taste of what it’s like to be an entrepreneur - a chance to think of a new business idea and make it happen, using real money to take calculated risks in the field of business, to make a profit and a difference.
As the headline sponsor, BGF investors sat on the judging panel – evaluating the weekly competitions based on sales pitches, trade stands and more, as well as the national competition. We were truly in awe of the ideas we saw and results achieved.
We also reckoned that we ought to rise to the challenge ourselves. So we ran the competition internally here at BGF: amongst other enterprises, we had an art auction, a bakery business, life coaching courses and a shoe shining franchise where training was received thanks to the team at Oliver Sweeney.
