Lochaber pupils get down to business in enterprise ‘den’
LOCHABER pupils got a taste of setting up their own businesses last week.
Teams from Kinlochleven and Mallaig High Schools were taking part in Young Enterprise Scotland Highland and Moray Area’s version of TV’s Dragon’s Den at Nairn Community Centre, pitching their idea for products to a panel of local business people.
‘Muganised’ from Kinlochleven High School was awarded £60 for its plans for decorated mugs and plates while Mallaig’s Tailored to Tartan picked up £70 for its proposed handmade tartan cushions.
Linda Thomas, chairwoman of YES Highland and Moray said: ‘Our dragons were particularly impressed with the enthusiasm, professional presentations and innovative product ideas from the young people taking part this year.’
