Enterprise challenge ideas

Discussion in 'Business studies' started by apruhe, May 14, 2012.


  1. Good afternoon,
    <font face="Calibri,sans-serif" size="2"> </font>
    We've done similar tasks before, but seem to be ending up with the same old marketing mix style activity - create a new advertising poster, product etc
    <font face="Calibri,sans-serif" size="2"> </font>
    Does anyone have any ideas or challenges that they've set before, which have proven successful -
    Thanks in advance!

  5. Hi
    We get our AS Business students to take part in a week of enterprise challenges as part of Global Entrepreneurship week. We usually get a number of local firms to run/support and sponsor activities. This year we were lucky enough to have Nick Hewer from the Apprentice hosting the final - so we based our actvities around Apprentice style tasks. Things we asked the groups of students to do included:
    • running a social marketing campaign (run by a local marketing firm) on either twitter or facebook (the team with the most hits won!).
    • designing a retail outlet with a difference for a local travel agency which was internet based and looking to set up a physical agency.
    • devising a new strategy for a local farm (with play area, petting area, farmshop) which would take advantage of the opening of the South Downs National Park.
    • designing and exhibiting a new product for Harveys (a local brewery), this was the one they had to present to a panel of judges (including Nick Hewer).
    Think that was about it this year, although in the past we have got them to run mini enterprises/market stalls etc. Watch a few of the old Apprentices - they are bound to give you some inspiration (or leave it to your business guests - which is what I did!!).
    Good luck..
