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.
