We hope to see all link teachers or their representative attend along with as many students as possible who would like to be part of the Young Enterprise programme. This is a unique event with opportunities to network with some of the best young business people in Scotland and not to be missed.
We have more schools taking part than ever before, making the 2017 challenge all the more competitive and the day aims to give students a level playing field and the best start possible to the competition so don’t miss it!
