On Tuesday 18th June, Young Enterprise, the national charity that supports young people to successfully earn and manage money, is hosting an awards ceremony to celebrate the talented young people changing the face of business. The UK Company of the Year Awards will be the grand finale of the 2019 Young Enterprise’s flagship Company Programme. Over the course of the year, thousands of young people from hundreds of schools located across the UK, The Channel Islands and Gibraltar have set up and run student businesses, battling it out in local and regional competitions. Fourteen teams compete at the final, and the overall UK winner will be crowned on the evening. The winner will go on to represent the UK at the JA Europe Company of the Year Final which is taking place in Lille, France, in July, with President Macron in attendance.
To provide you with a flavor of the products you can expect to see at the final visit Young Enterprise Market Place. Market Place is Young Enterprise’s online store where Young Enterprise student companies sell their products directly to the public.
Award winning journalist and BBC presenter Steph McGovern will host the evening, alongside celebrity entrepreneur Ben Towers.
WHO WILL BE THERE?
In the audience will be leading influencers in the start-up and business communities, Young Enterprise supporters from education and government and some special guests to present the awards.
