This year’s Young Enterprise team ‘Modus’ attended the area finals last week and came away with 2 awards for Communication and Teamwork and Best Company presentation. The team certainly did it the modus way, a name inspired by their individual style and approach. The team was formed back in October and have since had phenomenal success selling their branded canvas bags.
After raising funds by running a competition in school with the grand prize of an IPad they were able to purchase the bags and pay for the printing. The team then took these to Meadowhall in February and sold enough stock to break-even. Since then sales have continued and the business have generated a strong profit margin. Their achievements are a recognition of their hard work, commitment and perseverance in running a successful company alongside their Y12 studies. The final team included Sam Willey, Matthew Boardman, Macauley Roberts, Ben Brydges, Aidan Kidder, Ben Oxley and Alex Shillito. The team would like to thank the help and support of their two business advisors, Mike Webster and Marian Pink, without whom they would have never got off the ground.
