Entyrety’s Success at Young Enterprise

Entyrety’s team consists of 11 enterprising Year 10 students. They designed, researched and developed their fantastic ‘green’ furniture made from recycled car tyres. Entyrety have also been busy promoting themselves on social media and around Bristol.

Entyrety had a successful day at the February Trade Fair based in The Mall, Cribbs. Following an extensive social media campaign the team were also invited to speak at a Bristol re-use event. Entyrety continue to receive support from Bristol based companies and have received some great some feedback.

On Tuesday 15 March the journey continued for Entyrety as they competed in the Young Enterprise West of England Area Semi-Final. Entyrety were selected as one of 10 finalists to compete in the Final on Thursday 5 May at Kingsweston House.

The semi-final judging looked at the product, the stand and the knowledge and cohesiveness of the team together with a 2 minute presentation to a ‘Dragons Den’ team of judges by 2 members of the Entyrety team.

The judging criteria covered:

The competition at the semi-final was fierce but the whole Entyrety team worked well together to ensure they delivered information in a smooth, polished and professional manner, which impressed the judges. Abby and Joe delivered a well-written and rehearsed presentation to the ‘Dragons’.

So, Entyrety have made it through to the Final. They are currently busy writing and creating their presentation and company report. Entyrety want to win the ‘Top Company’ Award and make it through to the next round. In addition, there are other awards available to the team; “Best Report”, “Best Presentation” or “Best Managing Director” to name just a few.

I want to wish Entyrety the best of luck for the Final! You have shown a real commitment to the Young Enterprise experience and, no matter the outcome at the Final, I hope you all feel like winners!

If you would like to support Entyrety by purchasing one of their ‘green’ chairs you can order direct on their website. Alternatively, you may have a contact who can support Entyrety in getting their furniture into stores / links with useful business associates. If you do, please contact the team directly.
