Queen’s girls aim for enterprise double

Girls from The Queen’s School are hoping to make it a Young Enterprise double after winning a Best Business Plan Award

The success was achieved at the Chester Young Enterprise Interim Awards.

This year’s good news for one of the school’s companies Utopia follows last year’s win for Queen’s Young Enterprise company Vega, who won through to the national finals in London.

Utopia has developed a discount card targeted at Chester students and teenagers who, as non-tax payers, are not eligible for the Charisma card.

Boutique city centre stores offer discount on production of the card, and already the girls have a rapidly growing database of customers.

Queen’s other Young Enterprise company Libra is developing a Spanish travel book for 5-7-year-olds which they later plan to expand into other languages.

On April 24, both companies will compete in the CWAC round of the competition, where they will present their ideas and trade stands.

Utopia Managing Director Alex Williams, from Chester, said: “We have been working closely together as a group and taking lots of advice from the girls who did so well last year. We were really happy to get the Best Business Plan Award and we’re looking forward to showcasing how much progress we’ve made at the April competition.”
