The Rotary Enterprise Challenge Project is a young entrepreneurs competition run by the Rotary Clubs of Bathavon and Bath, in association with Mr B Abood, Head of Business Studies at Oldfield school. The aim is to introduce the world of business to a new generation of entrepreneurs. Students are all from Year 9.
After a full day of learning all the facets of designing, marketing and selling a product, teams of students submit their proposals to a panel of Rotarians with business experience who will advise them on how best to develop a business plan.
Teams of students will then turn their own creative business concepts into reality in a structured, innovative, competitive and fun way. Each week a team of mentors from the Rotary Clubs of Bathavon and Bath meet with the teams to give guidance.
The students develop and trade their businesses over a five-month period, followed by semi-finals and for the successful teams, the finals are held at an evening meeting attended by parents, friends, teachers and members of the two Rotary Clubs.
