Event description

Description

To launch our new Cardiff University social enterprise 'BeeWellbeing Ltd' we are running an enterprise challenge to engage students and young people with work readiness and enterprise skills.

We hope that we can help to remove barriers and create pathways for young people to gain business and soft skills training that is valued by local employers.

The competition will have multiple stages of interaction and young people will be challenged to create a brand identity for new Pharmabees products to be sold in a ‘pop-up’ shop designed within the St. David’s shopping centre in Cardiff.

Working in teams, Cardiff University students and young people from Grangetown will be challenged to design a brand and marketing plan for their product focusing on their skills in business, pricing, research, social media, design and marketing.

Winning students will receive expert coaching and will be given the opportunity to trade as a business over a 6 week period in a ‘pop-up’ store in St. Davids during October/November 2018.


Benefits to participants:

You will get the opportunity to take part in a real-life enterprise challenge supported by Cardiff University and its business partners.

Some of the skills that you will develop with the aid of our mentors include design thinking, innovation, soft skills, team work as well as presentation and communication skills.

The winning team get the opportunity to receive expert advice and trade as a business selling their product at St. Davids, Cardiff.

Please register your interest now as places are limited and filling up fast!
