Dragon’s Den Success
Well done to our Young Enterprise Team, Zooble, who have successfully taken part in a Dragon’s Den event this week and secured £75 of funding to help get their business up and running. The team, made up of Phoebe, Sam, Annabelle, Bethany, Nathaniel and Jake, have been working well together throughout the year to set up their business as part of the Young Enterprise challenge.
Nathaniel is responsible for PR and explains more:
“Our business is a platform where users can sell their used clothes to those who need them. Our core ideology being to increase the lifetime use of clothes to reduce landfill. Our website is currently being set up by Phoebe, our web designer. Recently, we participated in Young Enterprise’s Dragons Den and successfully received an investment of £75 from the following local businesses: Jacquie Tarry (The Mediterranean Way); Steve Winter (Wightfire); Jamie Busby (Hose Rhodes Dickson); Matt Jeffery (Brightbulb Design) and Sue Lucas (Moore South). The money will be used to support our marketing and the infrastructure of our website, Zooble. We would like to thank Miss Tanya Norris and Mr Paul Dyer, who have supported the business and arranged after school meetings to prepare us for Dragons Den and beyond.
We can’t wait to see how their business idea will develop and grow!
