Smart Enterprising!

On Sunday 8th February, this year’s Young Enterprise team, Smarthouse Publications, attended the Metro Centre Trade Fair to promote and sell their product – a guide for those who have no experience of using a computer (and other similar electronic devices) but would like to learn. The team of seven students (Charlie Ward [MD], Maisie Jenkins, Emily Kilner, Lewis Scholes, Omar Hasan, Archie Dickinson and Jonny Wrightson) have written and designed the guide themselves which includes easy to follow step-by-step instructions to explain something as simple as turning on a computer to producing a variety of documents. The team already have the support of three local companies who have sponsored advertisements in the book and they are now exploring marketing strategies and potential retail outlets. The book can be bought for oneself or as a gift for someone “not too good with computers”(!). Click here to see the team’s flyer and order a copy of the guide. More information can be found on their website - http://smarthouse.wix.com/young-enterprise  

The team received very positive feedback at the Metro Centre Trade Fair and even made several sales. They are now preparing for the Area Finals competition with the hope of going on to represent the North East. Watch this space!
