Global Entreprenuership Week 2010


"As Minister for Business and Enterprise, I am delighted to endorse Global Entrepreneurship Week 2010
Now in its third year, Global Entrepreneurship Week brings together university students, school pupils, teachers, entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, employees, non-profit organisations and many others to celebrate and promote entrepreneurship across the globe. And this global movement is growing every year, with more and more countries and organisations involved. We want to make the next decade the most dynamic and entrepreneurial in the UK’s history.
The work carried out by organisations such as Youth Enterprise Hull will help us achieve this, and is testament to the dedication across the UK to support and encourage young people to get involved with enterprise and entrepreneurship.
I wish everyone involved every success for the week and beyond."
Minister for Business and Enterprise


DAY ONE: Monday 15th November 2010 - MAKE YOUR MARK CHALLENGE

The Make Your Mark Challenge is a national initiative and in Hull it involves over 150 secondary school students being given a secret brief and then having to develop a product or service based around those instructions. Working in groups, the young people will have to allocate roles to each group member, then create a product or service and, all importantly, show how it will make money. On hand for advice will be local business people, but the final presentations will be down to the groups themselves, the winner being chosen by a panel of judges looking for the most convincing business idea.
Blind adventurer and inspirational speaker Miles Hilton Barber will be awarding prizes as well as sharing thoughts on his own unique life journey.





DAY TWO: Tuesday 16th November 2010 HULL READY CELEBRATION

Imagine being given money and the freedom to do with it as you like! That is exactly what children from 33 local Primary Schools have had to deal with as part of the Make £5 Blossom project. This sees a school and its pupils given a £150 loan
by a local business and then set the challenge of coming up with an enterprising venture to try and make a profit. Schools then share their experiences at an end event and the loan is repaid; all profit made on the initial £150 will be for the school to use as they see fit.







DAY THREE: Wednesday 17th November 2010 HULL OUR CITY

Planning, promotion and delivery are all essential qualities in running a successful business, and secondary pupils taking part in the Hull Our City event at the University of Hull will be practising all three as they consider the location, promotion and running of an Olympic Stadium in Hull. Advice from experts will be heard before the young people decide where to put the stadium, how to run the restaurant in the Olympic Village and finally how can they get their project into the headlines most effectively.


Watching closely will be guest speaker Claire Young,
finalist from the BBC’s The Apprentice programme,
who will go on to tell the young people about her journey in business.




DAY FOUR: Thursday 18th November 2010 POST-16 ENTERPRISE MASTERCLASS

Many of the 16-18 year olds taking part in this Masterclass will already have some idea what their future directions will be, but one person
capable of perhaps making them think again will be no-nonsense, straight talking Ruth Badger, runner-up in the 2006 The Apprentice competition. As well as giving the young people the benefit of her experience in the world of business, Ruth will be heading up the Badger’s Sett, a panel of judges examining in detail the results of a group activity to come up with a marketing concept for the 2012 Olympics related to an object given to each group. Groups will be preparing a dynamic but concise two-minute presentation to the Badger’s Sett to decide who will walk off with the cash prize for best concept and pitch.








Bringing the week to a close is our Secondary Enterprise Masterclass, which will again see young people taking on the task of devising a convincing marketing concept for the 2012 Olympics before pitching it to Ruth Badger and fellow judges in the Badger’s Sett. The winning team will receive a special prize courtesy of Hull FC and £500 from Arco plus the chance to visit the KC Stadium, meet players, find out about the club as a business and shadow members of the staff. Further stimulation is guaranteed with a wide ranging group of speakers which include several local entrepreneurs plus the Lord Mayor of Hull Cllr David Gemmell, the High Commissioner of Mauritius Abhimanu Kudasamy, Alan Johnson MP and, of course, Ruth Badger herself.


DAY FIVE: Friday 19th November (Evening) CELEBRATION EVENT

Don’t miss out on our end-of-theweek Celebration Evening  of fun, food and live music at The University's Staff House, with exciting duo Venus!
