Success is more than a theory for team Conspiracy

Farnborough College's Young Enterprise team for 2014-15

Ten students from Farnborough Sixth Form College have recently been awarded £100 investment from Young Enterprise, after forming their own company called ‘Conspiracy’. The team started their own business as part of the College’s enrichment programme.
Young Enterprise is the UK’s largest enterprise and financial education charity with the aim of helping young people to learn about the world of business. The student’s company, named, ‘Conspiracy’, has been set up to promote young artistic talent from within the College, particularly those looking to develop their careers in the creative industries. Conspiracy’s Business Plan involves selling student artwork at the College’s Open Days and other events. So far they have made around £200 to invest back into their company.

In the first leg of the competition, where the students were up against teams from 10 other local schools, the team had to present a 90 second pitch and then answer some difficult questions posed by the judges. ‘Conspiracy’ won the top investment of £100, with several companies representing Young Enterprise investing in their business idea.
