Mosaic is thrilled to announce the 25 regional finalists in the Mosaic Enterprise Challenge 2015.
The initiative, which is generously supported this year by the Apax Foundation and Nectar Trust as well as support from Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG), has seen a record number of pupils participate in the six week programme this year. School teams from around the country have competed enthusiastically to bring their entrepreneurial ideas to life, with the help and support of their business mentors.
The 25 winning school teams and their mentors will be invited to attend regional finals at the end of March which, for the first time, will be generously sponsored by GibbsS3 Ltd with Hermes also being co-supporter of the London event. The locations for the events include RBS in London, Slough Aspire Centre in the South East, Harbone Academy in Birmingham, Headingly Carnegie Stand in Leeds and KPMG offices in Manchester.
Jonathan Freeman, Managing Director of Mosaic commented: “The Mosaic Enterprise Challenge is one of the highlights of the year for us. It’s wonderful to see how enthusiastic the pupils are and how involved they get, it really does ignite their entrepreneurial spirit and undeniably develops their confidence and self-belief.
“Of course, we must acknowledge and thank those who provide the resources and support necessary to deliver the Challenge; without their input, the pupils involved who live in our most deprived communities would not have the opportunity to take part in this fantastic initiative.”
The winning school from each region will be invited to an unforgettable day in London where they will be asked to deliver a three-minute pitch to a panel of judges at the Grand Finals held at international law firm Hogan Lovells’ London offices on April 23rd 2015.
