Students from the MIV joined forces with students from Hammersmith Academy, Burlington Danes Academy and St Paul’s Junior School to participate in a entrepreneurship project designed to build connections and introduce the students to new skills. Sophia, MIV, tells us more about the day:
The students were given the challenge of designing a new restaurant and formulating a business plan. They had to assign roles, work out the financial, strategic and marketing aspects of their business and create a PowerPoint presentation for a five minute pitch. Each team presented their ideas clearly and delivered their pitch well. We all received constructive criticism and positive feedback from the panel of judges, but in the end there was one winner: Bamboo Kitchen, a restaurant specialising in Southeast Asian cuisine. The winners celebrated with a special prize of Krispy Kreme doughnuts and Skittles. The day was enjoyable, eventful and aided collaboration with local schools.
