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 trades, competing with other student companies through our a 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 response to the current situation (COVID-19) and the closure of schools across the country the Peter Jones Foundation has created a series of enterprise learning resources to support teachers, parents/guardians who are having to home educate their children. Whilst schools will be providing plenty of work, we wanted to offer an ‘extra-curricular’ opportunity to help your children continue to develop practical enterprise skills.
The Challenges are available for Primary and Secondary school students studying in the UK.
If you’re a teacher at a school in the UK, you can sign up now - Find out how to register here. You can also access our Teacher Support Guide here, complete with guidance and FAQs.
If you’re a student and want to take part, speak to a teacher at your school to get them signed up. You can remind them that it’s free!
If you work for a company that would like to support our work on the Tycoon Enterprise Competition, then please get in touch with us via email@example.com
