Tycoon Enterprise Competition
Tycoon is the Foundation’s flagship school and college based competition and was developed in response to the Prime Minister’s pledge to support every school in England to run its own business at the launch of StartUp Britain in March 2011.
Tycoon is a unique national enterprise competition for students aged 6 to 18. Every participating team writes a business plan, is lent money, starts a business and competes with other student companies through a sophisticated kickstarter style platform, in a safe and controlled environment.
The competition is split into four categories and is free to all schools and colleges. We provide goodwill start up capital, so only when student companies breakeven, do they repay their loan in full.
