Record numbers enter Cornwall Young Enterprise challenge
A RECORD number of budding entrepreneurs entered the county’s Young Enterprise scheme this year.
Twenty-four school groups, made up of 15 to 19-year-olds, showed off their business ideas at the spring trade show at Sainsbury’s supermarket in Truro.
The high number of entrants gave the event a “fantastic, competitive atmosphere”, according to Katie Vage, who manages the Cornwall branch of Young Enterprise, a UK-wide education enterprise charity.
The Comic-Corn team, from Richard Lander School, won the award for Best Trade Stand with its comic strip characters based on fruit and vegetables.
