A class of 20, Year 9, GCSE, Business students went to Shoosmith’s in Birmingham, who are investment lawyers, to present their Dragon’s Den style pitch.
The trip concluded 4 weeks’ worth of work. The students were given a brief to follow and had to design, research, market and present a new product, this was followed by intense questioning by the ‘dragons’. All five groups presented well with a variety of ideas. After deliberating the winner, the dragons decided that the winners were Simran, Alicja and Beth who pitched a C-Blast Smoothie targeted at active females. The students feedback of the event was; “It was daunting to do the presentation but was a good experience” “I hope we do more like this in lessons as it is fun”
Well done to all participants.
