InStock Technologies, our Young Enterprise team, will represent the North West at the National Young Enterprise Finals in London.
The team, made up of lower sixth formers, are now one of the top six Young Enterprise teams in the country after winning the North West Final, which was held at the University of Central Lancashire.
In their feedback, the judges said: “The panel were unanimous in our view that you were consistently exceptional at all stages of the process – from the professionalism of your report writing, through to your interaction with us on your Trade Stand, culminating in your powerful presentation – wow!”
The group, who promote virtual reality headsets, won a series of Young Enterprise awards in the run up to the North West Final.
At the Stockport, Tameside and Rochdale regional final they were named ‘Overall Winner’ after producing a company report, preparing a trade stand and presenting to judges, teachers and other schools.
In the Greater Manchester final, the team were crowned ‘Best Overall Company’ and won the award for ‘Best Company Report’. The judges stated that they were “one of the most professional Young Enterprise teams we have ever seen.”
The group then visited Pricewaterhouse Coopers in Manchester to take part in a Dragons’ Den style pitch. They explained how the headsets worked and spoke about the successes of the business to date. Some of the team also headed to the Trafford Centre to take part in their Young Enterprise Trade Fair where they received the award for ‘Best Product/Service Stand’.
