As part of the young enterprise scheme, students were tasked with setting up a business. They decided upon a gift shop themed Retail Company named LollyBee, with Valeria as Managing Director. She led a team that created and executed a business plan that covered everything from product research, financials and employee structure to marketing and product design and production.
Taking part in this scheme really helped Valeria to improve her management, entrepreneurial and marketing skills. It has also helped her develop her confidence and is showing real entrepreneurial flair! Valeria was chosen by the Wessex Enterprise as the winner of the Wessex Enterprising Student Award for the role that she played in this great business venture.
