Welcome to the I Know I Can Barnsley Big Challenge.
The I Know I Can Barnsley Big Challenge is an enterprise competition open to any young person aged between 9 and 19 living and learning in Barnsley.
Teams of up to 8 students are invited to submit a business idea. Each successful team will be paired up with a mentor from the business community who will invest £25 and an hour every month to guide and support the team as they grow your business idea. When you have made a profit, this £25 must be paid back but everything after that belongs to the team to do with as they choose.
The overall winners are decided at a Dragons Den pitch at the end of the academic year.
To enter the Big Challenge please complete the application form. The deadline to enter the competition is Wednesday 19th October.
If you are a school, college or community organisation wishing to be involved in the competition or a local business person wanting to be involved as a business mentor, please contact Helen Valentine on 01226 773453 or firstname.lastname@example.org
