November 23, 2012

THESE young entrepreneurs have shown they have what it takes to make it in the world of business.

The team from John Ruskin College in Selsdon were the winners of a Dragon’s Den-style event held as part of the first Croydon Enterprise Week earlier this month.

Under the name of Business Berries, Lee-Ann Inniss, Mustafa Adam and Shauna Chambers created a winning proposal involving a mobile device application for students to stay in touch with tutors’ comments about their coursework.

They were one of four teams taking part in the competition and their prize was £500 and a business mentoring support package from the SME Consortium.

Croydon Enterprise Week 2012 ran from November 5 to 10 at venues across the borough and hundreds of people joined more than 20 workshops and one-to-one advice sessions about starting their own business.

Enterprise Week was a joint initiative by Croydon Council, NatWest Bank, Croydon Voluntary Action (CVA), the Federation of Small Businesses, training providers, colleges, local businesses and the voluntary sector.
