The Newquay Tretherras Young Enterprise took their product, the Key Companion to the Young Enterprise Trade Fair on Saturday, December 5th.
The YE Trade Fair held at Cornwall Services, off the A30 at Roche, welcomed aspiring young business men and women from 11 of the County’s Schools and Colleges.
As part of the programme, the Tretherras Young Enterprise team exhibited their product to the public, aiming to sell for profit, whilst being judged by a panel of successful local business owners. Throughout the day, the teams were interviewed, quizzed on their product knowledge and even ‘secret shopped’.
The Key Companion, a ‘Swiss Army’ style key ring tidy, was very well received by the public, gaining a lot of interest and winning the Tretherras team two awards, Runner-Up for Best Overall Company and Best Sales Pitch.
Mr Anthony Lawrence, Teacher at Newquay Tretherras commented, “ The Newquay Tretherras Young Enterprise team did exceptionally well. The team worked really hard to make the Key Companion succeed.”
