My First Enterprise
Tranche d'age : 4th year secondary students
Over a period of 10 weeks, a group of 3 to 4 students, with a starting capital of €40, tries to make it grow through a purchase-sale activity of small products, a service offered or a production activity. The aim is to teach them the first steps of business management.
Each group details the activities carried out, such as the purchase of raw materials, the sale of products, the management of the cash book, marketing actions, etc. Pupils have to take initiatives and decisions. A teacher supervises and advises the groups if necessary.
A joint sale and a competition for the best projects will be organised in the spring.
The aim of this project is to enable young people to learn to work in groups, to manage a project, to be in contact with suppliers and consumers and to prepare them for future projects such as the Mini-Enterprises project.
Period: November – March
This programme can be seen as a stepping stone to the Mini-Companies, Practice Enterprises, Junior Project Awards and Innovation Camp programmes. The programme is also a complement to the You(th)Start Challenges.
