Three companies made up of Lower Eighth students create and run a business, going through the entire process of product development, market research, sales, marketing and financial management. At the end of the year, students compete in a series of rounds and are tested on a company report, a trade stand and a four minute presentation.
The Young Enterprise competition is organised in the Richmond and Kingston Area.
