Worcester Bosch Enterprise Initiative 2017 draws to a close

The final of the Worcester Bosch Enterprise Initiative will take place on Sunday 5 March when Warriors take on Bristol Rugby at Sixways in the Aviva Premiership.

After a six-month programme, which involved schools from across the region, the winners from each school will compete to be crowned the Worcester Bosch Enterprise Initiative winner 2017. 

The initiative has seen Warriors offering students from local schools the opportunity to design a product that can be sold at the Sixways Store. 

Each school came up with a number of different ideas before presenting them to the Warriors Head of Fan Engagement Beth Reader. Beth selected one idea from each school to progress to the final.

The schools competing for the prize this weekend will be Christopher Whitehead Language College, Baxter Business and Enterprise College, South Bromsgrove High, Bishop Perowne Church of England College, The Stourport High School and Shireland Collegiate Academy. 

Each school will present their idea to local business leaders that includes Worcester Bosch Sales Director Steve Lister, Warriors Community Foundation Manager Carol Hart and leading local recruiter Louise Hewett from Hewett Recruitment.

Worcester Bosch Chief Executive Carl Artzen said: “We are all looking forward to the final of the Worcester Bosch enterprise initiative. Having watched the children present their ideas in the preliminary stages we expect the final to be of an exceptionally high standard.”

Following the awarding of the trophy the winners will then see their idea come to fruition with profits from the sales of the product going directly back to the school.
