Hi guys
This year I've chosen to take part in the Young Enterprise scheme and we have the Finals coming up soon and we're completely stuck as to what to put on our Stand.

So I was wondering whether anybody here has been involved with YE and whether they have any suggestions as to what we could put on the stand?


Thanks

for our company last year, we sold a school board game so for our stand we made huge dice and used a black background with white dots for our stand..basically we tried to shape our stand in the shape of a die as well. hahah. but it was quite a disaster because we arrived late due to floods and had to set it up in 5 minutes sooo it was all in a bit of a shambles.!! they were really mean to us as well because we're a public school and talked all about how it was necessary to 'give opportunities' to others.

We made customised pillowcases.
We've got 6 boards to fill and have filled roughly 4 of them but stuck on what to put on the other two.

Boards:
1. Logo
2. Information about the MD's
3. What we did for Fundraising
4. Product + Desc.

Aah good old Young Enterprise, such a disaster in my school, or at least my year was. Only me and one other person really cared about doing well in it, so the others left us to go to the competition thing alone with pretty much no stand and nothing to show / say. Funnily enough 2 of the other 6 schools had pulled out too, so we nearly made it to the next round.

We did playing cards based on our school since nobody could be bothered to do anything better. I hated my team, made me do everything, then blamed me when I couldn't cope with it all.

Oh dear if people did that to me I would've seriously lost my rag.


With regards to the budget, we're not really marking one out as we hope it'll just be printed stuff. So as long as it's not overly expensive we won't mind.

My group made clocks with foam faces for those that are "young at heart" lol. We were rubbish we sold one to someone from the general public, the rest of our sales came from sellng to teachers at school. We also change managing director about 4-5 times just because everyone ended up getting p***ed off with everyone else.

Well we're making customised pillowcases with photos of whatever the customer wanted.

But we have 2 panels on the stand left to fill and we seriously have NO clue what to put on these last two.

We havnt even started thinking about the finals. Our company report had to be in last friday. We started writing it last wednesday and finished thursday night. We didnt even ahve a mission statement until we made up one on wednesday.

We had the YE exam last tuesday which half of us did, and the other half went to our first and last (only) trade fair. We made about £55, there.

We got old jeans and turned them into bags and stuff. But that idea only came up like a month ago. Our main thing was buying santa hats at christmas and selling them in college. Made £180 XD
