The Dragons Apprentice Challenge is an innovative annual Business Challenge for students, typically between 16 and 17 years old. Teams are given £100 seed capital, matched with a local business professional (Dragon) and paired with a local Charity Partner
Participants have 4 months to come up with a business idea, make it happen and report on it. The aim is for teams to turn their £100 into £1000+ through executing a single or series of business ideas. All profits made by the teams are presented directly to their allocated charity. This is the first year the challenge has taken place in Essex.
At the end of the process we want to celebrate their achievements, with their families and other invited guests. We are delighted to be hosting our first Dragons Apprentice Challenge Awards evening on Wednesday 25th April 2018, celebrating the achievements of the students who have taken part in this first year of the challenge. Our venue will be Saffron Walden County High School, with the ceremony starting at 6.30 p.m.
Thank you to everyone who has taken part in the Challenge this year, and making is a wonderful success!
