Young Enterprise – Dragons’ Den Winners

WGS Young Enterprise Company Seasonal Night In took part in the Young Enterprise North West Dragons’ Den competition held at PwC in Spinningfields on 1st February.

They were one of eleven Greater Manchester teams presenting their companies and products to six judges (dragons) from various business sectors, including Bentley, HSBC and GE Capital.

Each team of entrepreneurs were required to give a four-minute presentation about their company and products, followed by ten minutes of grilling by the ‘dragons’. The Withington team members gave an excellent account of themselves, impressing the dragons who awarded them joint first place.

Young Enterprise Coordinator, Ms Catherine Ositelu, said: “Well done to the company and in particular to the participants who did our school very proud on the day: Nicola, Lucy, Sanchi, Katy and Helen. This is an exciting and encouraging achievement as the team is about to start preparing for the North and South Manchester Finals to be held at HSBC, Spinningfields, on 15th March.”
