Enterprise Day for First Years
Budding Entrepreneurs in 1st Year…
All 1st Year Students will engage in the Dominican College’s annual Enterprise Day, hosted by Ulster Bank.
It will take place in the school gym on Monday 1st February 2016.
What is a Business Enterprise Day?
This hands on engaging day takes our budding entrepreneurs through the steps required to create a new business and saleable products, including market research, finances, concept and finally creation of their own Café.
Working in teams, the first task is to embrace the work and think out their concept. What equipment do we need? How much will it cost to make our menu items? How much profit will be made? These questions and more must be answered before moving on.
Probably the most enjoyable section of the day, where all their ideas start to come together. Using the ideas they have selected, students must create their café concept, theme and menu and other material that adds value to their product.
To finish the day, each team must make a small presentation of their idea, the reasons behind it and how they went about producing the final project to the Dragons!Do our 1st Years have what it takes?
