Our Young Enterprise company, Puzzle, is celebrating after winning ‘Best Stand’ at the South and East Derbyshire Young Enterprise Trade Fair, which took place at Intu Derby shopping centre.
Puzzle had a tremendous day with monumental sales of their product, a puzzle-shaped chalkboard. Chloe Hand, 16, said the boards were made using the school’s laser cutter: “We have them in two different sizes. The small one is good for children in their nurseries and the large one would look good in a family kitchen to write memos on.”
Chloe continues: “I designed a website for our business and we made business cards too, which was fun. You don’t realise just how much goes into setting up a business before you can actually sell a product, so it’s been good learning about that.”
The team is hoping to go forward to the next stage and is eagerly awaiting the results of their most recent presentation. More to follow.
