Huddersfield students compete in entrepreneurial competition
A team of students from Greenhead College were named overall winners in this year’s Umph! business and enterprise competition, which took place at Huddersfield Town on Tuesday 2 July.
The winning team was made up of four year- 12 A-level business studies students, Zhi Hui Zhao, Saakshi Barman, Chris Gibson and Ben Bentley.
Greenhead College beat over a hundred contestants from sixth forms and colleges across Yorkshire to win the award. Using SimVenture business simulation software, as well as giving presentations and being tested on their business knowledge, the contestants were judged by a panel of experts that included business advisers from organiser Grant Thornton. Specialists from law firm Bond Dickinson, Huddersfield University and Fantastic Media were also on the judging panel alongside Town’s very own Andy Booth, Tracy Nelson, Ajin Abraham and Katie Barraclough.
During the day-long competition, the contestants received input and advice in intimate workshop sessions from a line-up of a dozen entrepreneurs from the region, including Huddersfield Town Chairman and Card Factory founder, Dean Hoyle and Huddersfield-based entrepreneur Nick Glynne, founder of club partner BuyItDirect.com.
