Helen Gill from HelloU has been working as a business mentor, supporting students from Hymers College in Hull who recently participated in the Young Enterprise UK Company Programme Finals.
The Young Enterprise UK Company Programme is a national competition that encourages young people to set up and run their own businesses, gaining practical experience and skills that are valuable in the world of work. The programme provides guidance, resources and support to help students develop their entrepreneurial skills and create successful businesses.
The students from Hymers College were able to excel at the competition, ultimately winning the Innovation & Technology award and becoming runners-up overall. The students' company, PlannerBox, showcased their innovative ideas and entrepreneurial skills, impressing the judges and the audience with their unique approach to problem-solving task management through technology and innovation.
Speaking about the success of the students, Helen Gill said, "I am thrilled to see the students' hard work and dedication pay off. It has been a pleasure working with them and seeing their progress throughout the programme. The Young Enterprise UK Company Programme is an excellent opportunity for young people to gain practical experience and develop their entrepreneurial skills, and I am proud to be a part of it."
Helen also expressed her excitement about continuing to support PlannerBox as they move forward with their business. "I look forward to continuing to work with PlannerBox and supporting them as they take their business to the next level. The students have shown great promise and I am confident that they will achieve great success in their future entrepreneurial endeavors."
