Two school business teams from Milton Keynes will represent the new city in the next stage of the Young Enterprise competition.
Vetro Fashion, from Milton Keynes Academy, scooped the overall Young Enterprise title, pipping Lightning, from Ousedale, at the new city’s finals yesterday (Wednesday).
The Vetro team impressed the judges by reporting an operating profit of £3,841 from their vintage and retro fashion. They make fashion clothes out of donated clothes, keeping their costs low.
Lightning put brain teasers and riddles on what they call Magic Mats.
Sixteen teams contested the final, making presentations to an audience as well as setting up trade stands. An array of Milton Keynes based businesses supported the event and the 11 prizes handed out on the night.
The two winners go through to the Buckinghamshire county final.
Milton Keynes Young Enterprise chairman Eric Collins, of Nampak, said he was hopeful that the teams will do well in the county final. “Milton Keynes has won for the last three years,” he said.
And Milton Keynes mayor Catriona Morris said: “Make Milton Keynes very proud.”
