Stu­dents hope Festekit will be their big break

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A GROUP of bud­ding en­trepreneurs are cre­at­ing a kit with ev­ery­thing a fes­ti­val-goer would need.

The Young En­ter­prise com­pany in­cludes stu­dents from Dr Chal­loner’s High School, in Lit­tle Chal­font, Dr Chal­loner’s Gra­mamr School, in Amer­sham, and St Mary’s School, in Ger­rards Cross.

They have named the kit Festekit and it aims to pack ev­ery­thing that you could need for a fes­ti­val into a light­weight bag.

Keen fes­ti­val-goer and man­ag­ing direc­tor of the com­pany Johnny Pagni, 16, said: “I wanted the ex­pe­ri­ence of run­ning my own busi­ness. It is more com­pli­cated than you would think.”

There are 10 stu­dents in­volved with the com­pany and they have their meet­ings in GE Health­care, in Lit­tle Chal­font.

The kit in­cludes hand sani­tiser, UV paint, flask and con­doms.

The Dr Chal­loner’s Gram­mar School stu­dent said: “We started off with lots of dif­fer­ent ideas. We

The stu­dents share their ideas thought about what we do with our time and what sort of things would be use­ful for us and that is how we came up with the idea of mak­ing the fes­ti­val kit.

“It is hard work cre­at­ing some­thing from scratch, but it has made me more in­ter­ested in busi­ness and how it all works.”

There will be three for­mats of the kit – a ba­sic, bronze and pre­mium – and the price will range from £8 to £13.

Johnny, who stud­ies maths, phi­los­o­phy, English and his­tory at AS level, hopes that the kit will be ready for peo­ple to take to fes­ti­vals this sum­mer.
