News & Events

This March saw the first year of the Tenner Challenge for grown ups. We had a huge variety of businesses created for the month including a sweet shop, a pop up restaurant, a hairstyle workshop, card designs and sales, film nights and homemade body products. It’s been really interesting to see the level of engagement from the teams and the sense of competition! Young Enterprise itself had 2 teams at head office who went head to head, supporting (or pestering?!) all their colleagues with tea and food sales.

We were hugely impressed with the creativity, innovation and entrepreneurial spirit that took businesses by storm for a month. We’ve loved hearing about how they got on. Here are some quotes from a few teams involved:

“I had to really push my sales skills to raise as much money as possible, and communicate our fundraising effectively to the office. It was definitely challenging to keep up a mini-business over a month (I have no idea how the young people do it!), but I also really enjoyed myself.”

“It was a great event throughout March and it generated such a positive buzz and energy throughout the office. We loved taking part and look forward to the next challenge in the future.”

“Young Enterprise is all about helping young people reach their potential.   It’s a great cause and we want to raise as much possible.”

We’ve also heard that the Challenge brought offices together and created a sense of camaraderie and fun. euNetworks felt the same – here’s a photo of the team.
