Young Enterprise Teams - making an impact
King’s High and Warwick School Young Enterprise teams are on fire. At the Young Enterprise Presentation Evening at IBM, Team Ambiente won Best Marketing, and Teams Imperium and Fresco won through to the next round of competition at Coventry University on May 8. All the teams have been out and about, pitching their company products at the Leamington and Central Warwickshire Trade Fair, and the Young Enterprise Trade Fair in Stratford-upon-Avon.
Team Imperium have developed Stress Less, an innovative, interactive exam revision pack, that includes revision tips, information, advice on sleep and lifestyle, and QR codes, that direct students to a relaxing music playlist, and an online quiz, that Team Imperium devised, so that students can personalise revision methods that suit them best. The Team have developed a website, https://www.teamimperium.co.uk/
Martha Sandford, of Team Imperium, reports: ‘We have sold Stress Less at King’s High Parent’s Evening, presented to Warwick School in an assembly, and did a presentation to the Chase Meadow medical practice. We can proudly say that 100% of our profits will be donated to Young Minds, a charity helping young people with mental health issues, who might otherwise be struggling. Our product has been approved by two psychologists and two wellbeing mentors, who all recommend the product – ‘This is a great guide to encourage anyone doing exams to look after themselves and take active steps to reduce understandable stress’- Dr Alice Kerr BSc Hons, Chartered Clinical Psychologist. If you would be interested in purchasing this helpful guide, then please order our product online from weblink (store.teamimperium.co.uk) for only £5.99.’
Ella Lawton-Smith, of Team Ambiente, reports: ‘Ambiente is a company of 13 students from King's High and Warwick. Our primary aim is to provide high quality products we have manufactured ourselves, using clothing which would be destined for landfill otherwise. This is an environmental issue of huge proportions and we want to be able to draw attention to this through a focus upon sustainability. We teamed up with Cancer Research UK, who have provided us with the materials we used to make our sustainable scrunchies, bracelets and earrings. All our profits will be donated to them, at the end of what has been a highly successful venture.’
