Mr Bright is delighted to share news of Digit4ll’s latest venture with Young Enterprise..

Last week the DIGIT4LL Pathway gave a ‘Dragons’ Den’ presentation to a panel of 6 business leaders at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in Manchester..

The trip out was part of our Young Enterprise workshops in which the students run their own printing and video businesses. They did so well! Each student took a turn at speaking and they were all so confident. Take a look..

The corporate building was quite overwhelming, even upon entering we were all a little confused as there were no numbers on the inside of the lifts. You had to choose your level beforehand…very fancy!

Our students were also being employed by the Young Enterprise company to create a video of the event. So not only were the students having to present their business, they were actually putting it into practice and being paid £500 for the job too!!! As all the profit made by the students goes to them as shareholders of their business, it was a good day’s work..

The group were all very impressed when they found out the coffee machine supplied unlimited cappuccinos or hot chocolate…for free! I think Lewis had 3 of them! Take a look as he sits back on his coffee break – he looks right at home in such a corporate world..

Josh and Lewis sat back and took in the city skyline from this high-rise building in the centre of Spinningfields which is the heart of the financial quarter of Manchester. I wonder what they were thinking: “When will I work in an office like this?”, “What a view!” or maybe “When do the free biscuits come?”..

Whatever they were thinking, I know they enjoyed the experience. After coming out of the ‘Dragons’ Den’ presentation, Lewis said:

This is an experience I’ll never forget…it was fantastic!

Mitchell completely blew me away when he said:

The Dragons gave us some real constructive feedback on using social media to improve our marketing.

These students impress me more and more each year. After the success of last year’s awards in London, I’m looking forward to reporting on how the next few months unfold..
