Case Study


Form the Future recently ran its first event at Saffron Walden County High School, where more than 300 Year 8 students had the opportunity to create exciting, new business ideas at our Enterprise Day.

The Enterprise Day is a popular event that we hold in schools to give students a taste of entrepreneurship and business management.

The students were challenged to work productively together in teams to develop a brand and business plan for their product or service. 15 business volunteers from a range of industries were brought in to lead each team. They also formed a Dragon’s Den-style judging panel that the students pitched to at the end of the day. Certificates were awarded in recognition of the students’ achievements, with special awards recognising teamwork, presentation skills and creativity.

“The Enterprise Days are a fantastic initiative and really challenge the students.  I enjoyed working with them for the day and I was amazed by their ideas and enthusiasm.”
Laura Blackmore
Principal at Stagecoach Performing Arts

An amazing variety of business ideas were proposed during a brainstorming session, with the final refined ideas including a treadmill for dogs, an online GP surgery and a clothing brand for teenagers, which won the award for the Most Innovative Business Idea.
