A group of young entrepreneurs from Gibraltar will exhibit in London as part of their final push to become winners of the UK’s Young Enterprise competition.
GibSights, a company set up by students from the Gibraltar College of Further Education, entered the Young Enterprise Company Programme and won the regional heat for Yorkshire and Humber, to which the Gibraltar scheme is linked.
An exhibition at the Intercontinental Hotel, Park Lane will form part of the final assessment. Senior team manager of Young Enterprise Yorkshire and Humber, Janet Brumby, says: “Exhibiting is an important business skill to learn, and the teams will also have to present their companies and products to a panel of experienced judges.”
GibSights produced an MP3 audio tour of the iconic Rock of Gibraltar, approved by the Gibraltar Tourist Board and the Gibraltar Museum. It costs £14.99 and has sold nearly 500 to date.
Speaking to the Gibraltar Chronicle, GibSights’ MD, Mark Moreno, says the team was excited to have made it this far: “It’s more intense than the previous stages, and being in the final means there is a big responsibility on us. But, just taking part and getting this far feels like we are winners already.”
The overall winner of UK Young Enterprise will be announced on 13 July.
