A group of students at our school decided to take part in an extracurricular activity, in which we were to effectively set up and run a business.
This activity is run in the UK by Young Enterprise
, the UK's largest business and enterprise education charity.Learning Objective:
Observe the practices used in small, start-up businesses, through the active involvement, and day-to-day running of a small, start-up business.
We first set about coming up with a name, and after a significant amount of thought, named ourselves 'Alpha Innovations' and designed our logo (see above).
There were certain guidelines provided by Young Enterprise in which to adhere to, including the prohibition of processing online payments (stopping us from selling on ebay etc.).
