In November, A Level Business Studies students took part in the Draper’s Den Competition. The annual competition is The Drapers’ Companies own version of Dragons’ Den. Each school is matched with two mentors from the Drapers’ Company and the Guild of Entrepreneurs and is tasked to design a sustainable product or service which could be commercially successful.
In its seventh year, four schools were invited to take part. Team ‘E-Clips’ defended the trophy with their product of the same name. An innovative solution for young cyclists to have access to cycling cleats. The team also developed a prototype of their product using 3D printing.
The team retained the trophy and also won £5000 for the school. Later this month, they will take part in the Livery Academy Awards at Mansion House hosted by the Lord Mayor of London.
Team E-Clips Members:
Miriam Elsergany, Samuel Stacey, Jonathan Goldby, Joe Brammer, Cameron Murdoch and Nathan Ezigbo
