Following many months of hard work designing their product, establishing a price point, and designing packaging and marketing materials, Ashfield Post 16’s 2020 Young Enterprise Team, The Mint Print Company, were out in Mansfield recently selling their t shirts and beanies in the Four Seasons Shopping Centre.
So far, the Year 12 team have managed to raise almost £550…with profit still rising! Along the way, they have developed and demonstrated many employability skills, such as leadership, team work and resilience. Invaluable support has been provided by local businesses: business support from Andy Jepson and Russ Price of Professional Ventilation Services (PVS) in Kirkby, embroidery by Emily of techmax in Kirkby, business knowledge support from Wayne Grant, local entrepreneur of Koopers Estate Agents, and Brian Hill from Young Enterprise.
The project will culminate in April with students presenting their business plan to judges at West Notts College, and we wish them all the very best!
