Sheffield’s Local Enterprise Growth Initiative was launched in September 2007 and aims to boost enterprise in Sheffield by helping more people to set up in business, support sustainable business growth and increase the success rate of locally-owned businesses in Sheffield. We are proud to have been associated with the project and will continue to support Sheffield Businesses in any way we can.
- The Big Challenge - The BiG Challenge is designed to encourage and generate enterprise in education. Teams made up of pupils aged 11-19 from schools and colleges had the opportunity to win a share of money to support enterprise in their school. There were £100,000 of prizes in total with personal rewards for each team member, plus the BiG Prize… a fully paid five day trip to the Harvard Business School in Boston USA for the winners.
Each business team was given £25 cash supplied by Sheffield Technology Parks to get them started. The teams’ business objective was to increase that amount by as much as possible within the BiG Challenge time frame, employing teamwork, innovation and entrepreneurship.
Sheffield Technology Parks would like to congratulate winners ‘Bits and Boblets’.
- Independent Workspace Advisor – Peter’s role as an Independent Workspace Advisor (IWA) for the Sheffield LEGI programme (branded as BIG), sees him continuing to assist a couple of the neighbourhood Enterprise Centres to develop their business plans and ensure, for LEGI, that there is appropriate management and sustainability built into the applications they make for LEGI funding.
