Competition Update

12 Nov

Thank you for your entries to our competition!  We have seen some great ideas already.  If you haven’t entered yet, you have until 23rd November to get your entries in.

In the meantime, here’s a little quote from Peter Jones of Dragons’ Den.

The UK needs young people to step forward and seize their futures, and competitions like Opportunity Plus South West’s play an important role in rewiring the next generation to be more entrepreneurial, and encouraging them to follow their business dreams.

Much of my work with the Peter Jones Foundation is focused on equipping young people with the tools to be entrepreneurial, either in the workplace or running their own business. The mentoring support being offered to Opportunity Plus entrants is exactly what is needed to instill the culture of enterprise and help create a British Dream for young people to aspire to.
