Young Enterprise and the Best of Bucks

Two Buckinghamshire teams are off to the Young Enterprise Regional finals in June.

 

Teenagers from across Bucks recently went head to head at the county’s Young Enterprise 2016 Finals, with Chiltern team, Telos and Aylesbury team, Healthy Heroes coming out on top.

 

Telos, a Young Enterprise Company made-up of 16 to 17 year olds from Dr Challoner’s Grammar and High Schools, won Best Overall Company and Healthy Heroes from Aylesbury Grammar School came runner up.

The finals took place on 6th May and were a culmination of 42 senior schools and over 800 pupils competing in the Milton Keynes, Aylesbury Vale, High Wycombe and Chiltern Areas.

Telos, have written, printed and sold The 100% Book - The Go to Guide for Teenagers, covering tips on writing CV’s, revision advice and ideas to keep you motivated. Available as a paperback they have now developed it into and eBook and iBook.

Health Heroes motto is “Educating through Entertainment” and promoting the importance of healthy eating.  They developed a fun card game for young children based on the top trump theme. So far they have been successfully selling their product via trade fairs, local markets and school events.

J Bennett & Son Insurance Brokers have been involved with the Young Enterprise charity in some form or other for a number of years and this year they had the pleasure of being able to sponsor County Finals 2016. 

Peter Sutcliffe, Managing Director has been volunteering as the Chair for Young Enterprise in the Chilterns district for 3 years. Sutcliffe said, “ We recently sponsored the county finals and what a fantastic event it was. The calibre of those taking part was extraordinary and leaves me with enormous faith in the next generation. I’m always amazed by our Business Advisors who so willingly give up their personal time to share their business knowledge and encourage each team to be innovative and brave in their enterprises.”

The Young Enterprise Charity

Founded in 1962, the Young Enterprise charity has worked with over 4 million young people to empower them to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes they need to succeed in the world of work. Each year they work with 250,000 young people with the support of 5,000 volunteers and 3,500 business partners.

 

The Regional Finals take place on 14th June 2016 at Reading University.

Good luck to all those taking part, but a special good luck to Telos and Healthy Heroes.
