Event description
Fourteen start up businesses run by local young people are coming together to showcase their talent, drive and skill for business.

About this Event

Company Programme has been Young Enterprise's hallmark programme for over 60 years. It is young people's opportunity to get experience the world of work first-hand, explore employability opportunities and grow their confidence and career aspirations. In 2018/19 an incredible 954 schools and 15,723 students across the UK took part; this year we're set to beat that number.

Company Programme challenges a group of students to set up and run their own business for one academic year. Students are supported throughout their journey by a variety of Young Enterprise resources, events and their dedicated mentors and teachers.

Throughout the year student companies participate in Masterclasses, Dragon's Den and trade fairs to grow and develop their understanding of the business world. Towards the end of the experience student companies are invited to attend the first stage of showcase competitions; the Dorset County Final. The 4-stage competition of Company Programme 2019/20 includes a regional final in Yeovil, national final in London and international final in Portugal.

During the County Final companies will showcase their business at a trade stand, will participate in a company interview and present their final business pitch to a panel of highly esteemed judges of business people from the local area, as well as guests, friends and family.

You're invited to come and see the journey these local enterprises have been on and help us celebrate the skill, drive and talent Dorset has to offer. Why attend?
