‘Monkey Business Sweets’ success
Budding young entrepreneurs from Year 13 represented Banbridge Academy in the most recent Young Enterprise Company Programme, with ‘Monkey Business Sweets’ achieving the ‘Digital Marketing Award’ as well as ‘Overall Runner Up’ in the Young Enterprise Big Market Competition.
During the academic year the student team promoted and sold their products on Trading Station. This has been developed by Young Enterprise as a user-friendly, digital selling marketplace allowing student companies to experience how to market and sell their products online.
Mr Robin McLoughlin, Principal, Banbridge Academy, commented,
“During these unprecedented times we were delighted that so many students were able to take part in this excellent entrepreneurial opportunity. Banbridge Academy had 14 companies taking part this year and all worked tirelessly to run their businesses during difficult times. We are delighted that ‘Monkey Business Sweets’ achieved such high accolades competing against schools from across Northern Ireland and received recognition for their efforts and innovative marketing techniques.”
