AVA Dragon Trophy Winners

AVA Young Enterprise students win this years Dragons Den trophy!

Congratulations to 'Castles in the Air', Aylesbury Vale Academy's Young Enterprise team, for securing the overall winning trophy at this years Aylesbury Vale Young Enterprise Dragons Den competition, recently hosted at the Academy.

Executive Principal Roger Burman presented 'Castles in the Air' the winning trophy at the team's board meeting on Friday 9 November.

One of the Dragons was so impressed with the AVA YE Student Company that they have decided to invest!

In a recent letter to Mr Burman, Laura Hook, Chairman of Young Enterprise Aylesbury Vale, congratulated  the team for their success and also expressed gratitude to Mr Burman and the Academy for hosting such a successful event.

Mrs Hook went on to say "...without your positive support towards the YE Company Programme we could not have run this event. The Company Programme gives these young people the opportunity to ‘learn by doing’ and is underpinned by a key set of employability skills. This event was invaluable in enabling these young people to get real live face to face time with successful business people and entrepreneurs".

Congratulations to all!
