Fired-up students attend launch of Dragon’s Apprentice Challenge 2014 at Watford Football Club
Twelve teams from schools and West Herts College descended on Watford Football Club for the launch of the Watford & Three Rivers Trust (W3RT) Dragon’s Apprentice Challenge 2014.
The 70 students taking part in this year’s project were greeted by BBC Apprentice finalist Jade Nash and Watford’s elected mayor, Dorothy Thornhill.
They were then matched with their business Dragon, and introduced to their partner charity.
After an energetic team-building exercise, the teams got down to planning how to turn their £100 "seed capital" into £1,000 for their partner charity.
Among the local charities being supported in this year’s challenge are the Peace Hospice and Watford Mencap.
Mayor Thornhill said: "It’s a real inspiration to see such an enthusiastic response from the students.
"The challenge isn’t easy, but I know W3RT’s Dragons will support the teams as they learn about business and the community and turn themselves into budding entrepreneurs. I wish every team enormous success."
