Prince’s Trust Mosaic Enterprise Challenge has been successfully completed for one more year. This year was special for the organisation because it was the celebration of their 10th year anniversary and their first year under Prince’s Trust roof. It was also, one of the most successful years for the competition with almost 5,000 students from 107 schools across the UK taking part and competing in ‘The Business Game’ and the Ethical Assessment. The Mosaic Enterprise Challenge is an annual business competition that helps thousands of young people increase their aspirations, confidence and self-motivation by having relevant and effective role-models to look up to and engage with.
The Grand Finals took place on Wednesday the 18th of May at Hogan Lovells International in London and the country’s top six teams had to pitch their business ideas to a panel of judges which included Mohammed Amersi, CEO and co-founder of Emergent Telecom Ventures, Nick Pickles, Head of Public Policy at Twitter, Vanessa Arelle, Entrepreneur and Founder of TeenzApp, Francisco Menjibar, Principal at Apax Partners and Fadi Itani, Deputy Director-General at Qatar Charity UK.
All the teams were amazing and their business ideas were second to none. On the day of the finals, the students had to play ‘The Business Game’ for the last time and the top scoring team managed to score over £7,000,000 on our business simulation.
This Year’s winner was Skinner’s Academy which is a secondary school and sixth form with academy status in London; the students won £2500 for their school, £500 to help invest in a business idea and specialist mentoring to help them bring that idea to life, winner’s trophy and afternoon treats which included a private capsule in the London Eye.
Congratulations Skinner's Academy!
