17 young entrepreneurs from Dr Challoner's Grammar School and Dr Challoner's High School will be celebrating their win at the Chiltern Area Young Enterprise Finals Day after winning ‘Overall Best Company’. Out of three teams from the two schools, Paramount, Spectrum and Incendium, Team Incendium have qualified for the next round.
An immense amount of hard work has gone into the project and now Incendium have produced an amazing book called Lost & Found London with illustrations and photography courtesy of students within the team. Lost & Found London helps to solve the problem of boredom amongst young people by highlighting the unique and contemporary places within London that are unknown amongst the general public. The book includes a range of sections including different places to eat, to visit and to shop.
It was a long process of attending meetings and setting up stalls at many Christmas Fayres to generate money to fund the publication of the book. However, Team Incendium have gained and improved many skills such as communication and marketing which has lead them to successfully win the 'Best Video' competition created as part of the Young Enterprise program as a way to advertise their book. They also managed to grab runner up in ‘Best Stall’ and first place in ‘Best Company Report’.
The team of Aarushi Bahl, Niamh McGuinn, Taneisha Atkinson, Ravneek Baht, Harry Shorthouse, Isaac Shenoy, Sam Webb, Alex Robinson, Elena Pope, Issie Covey, Rianna Chauhan, Esha Patel, Alex Cansdale, Hannah Elliott, Marion Sifflet, Deepali Shirkay and Ashlie Queyrel-Jordan are proud of their acheivements but still plan to carry on working hard to progress further in the competition.
