Superior invests in two student companies at Young Enterprise Dragons’ Den event
Posted on 17 February 2017
The event took place at Poole Grammar School on Tuesday 7 February, organised by Young Enterprise as part of its flagship programme, enabling young people to set up their own business and learn about enterprise.
The first company Katie chose to invest in was Nu-Vision, a team of students from St. Edward’s School which designs and creates energy efficient LED house numbers. Nu-Vision wanted to use the investment to help with promotion and marketing. Katie invested the remaining £25 in Luna, a team of students from St Edward's School and Parkstone Grammar School. Luna creates personalised vinyl records for the home and needed support for advertising on local radio and social media advertising.
Katie commented: “It was a privilege to attend the Young Enterprise Dragons’ Den event to hear pitches from some exceptional young people. It was a tough decision but Nu-Vision and Luna stood out as being incredibly professional and creative with great ideas.
“I was particularly impressed with Nu-Vision and Luna because both companies had calculated the cost per unit production, the retail price and subsequently the gross profit. Both companies gave a very professional pitch and I wish them every success in their future.”
