DiMeN students from Leeds, Sheffield, Newcastle and Liverpool are currently taking part in the annual Young Entrepreneurs Scheme (YES) competition. The YES competition is run over three days, our cross-institutional team will attend presentations from leading figures in industry on all aspects of knowledge exchange and the commercialisation of ideas.
This knowledge, and any gained prior to the YES workshop, provides a basis for participants to prepare an oral business plan for a company based on a hypothetical but plausible idea, based on real markets and financial data.
Today our DiMeN team will make a formal oral presentation of their business plan before a panel comprised of business, financial and academic representatives taking the role of equity investors.
Two teams from each YES workshop are selected to progress through to the Final hosted at the Royal Society in London.
Good luck to Serat-E, Emily, Heather, Jon and Katharina in Team DiMeN.
