Young Enterprise: Entyrety

Once again, Redland Green School students are taking part in the year long Company Programme provided by Young Enterprise. Students can “try the ultimate business challenge out for size” where they learn what it is really like to set up and run a business. 

The team of students make all the decisions about their company, from raising the initial share capital through to designing their product or service to selling directly to customers and ultimately winding up the company and paying their taxes. The team is supported by a Business Advisor who brings a wealth of business knowledge and expertise. 

Our Business Advisor this year is Amy Bracey of Hartnell Taylor Cook LLP. In addition to her knowledge and expertise, Amy’s parents own Braceys Interiors in Clifton and they have provided our students with material to make their products together with knowledge and contacts within the industry and local area to help make this year a success.

The company, Entyrety, started small, with just 5 students attending the first meeting, but has grown to 11 students.

The Company Programme provides two trade fairs for the students to promote and sell their product. The first of these took place on Saturday, 5 December at St Nick’s Market. The day was dry although cold and windy. Entyrety used this trade fair to raise money and had several items for sell consisting of the last few items of stock from last year’s team, Cook!t, fudge, candy canes and handmade stockings. Entyrety raised £250.00.

 

The next trade fair will be on Saturday, 27 February at The Mall at Cribbs Causeway. The students will be promoting and selling their main product. Entyrety have created their product keeping a ’green’ theme and helping the environment by making seats from old car tyres and recycling old material.
