The Ryman National Enterprise Challenge 2018

National Enterprise Challenge

The idea for the National Enterprise Challenge was created in 2012 by two cousins, Michael and Ben Dyer. They decided to create this event in order to help young people gain the skills needed for the world of work.

A year later, the idea became reality. Lord Alan Sugar agreed to be the face of the competition. A total of 58 schools signed up to take part in the challenge, with 11,000 young people participating.

The challenge starts in school, where a team from the national enterprise challenge visit for a full day event. Here, school children are set with a challenge and must come up with ideas for it. They are competing for the opportunity to represent their school in the finals. For the second time, the finals were this year hosted at The International Centre in Telford with event production provided by our team here at StagecraftUK.

As a result of the hard work put in by all of the team at national enterprise challenge and their sponsors, the event has grown significantly. Each year even more students take part, with 2017 seeing 40,000 young people participating.
