Putney's Young Enterprise teams triumph in the Central London Young Enterprise Final.

Both Putney’s Young Enterprise companies came away successful from the Central London Young Enterprise Final last week – a fantastic achievement and just reward for all the hard effort that has gone into the programme this year.

Novacia were awarded the Sustainability prize – their reusable sandwich bag being praised for addressing directly the problem of single use plastics.

Novus Ltd won the Disney prize for Creativity with their t-shirts based around Lily W’s fabulous cartoon designs which depict global environmental problems – “In the spirit of Disney,” the judge commented on presenting the award.

There were some great comments on how the skills being developed differ from the usual academic skills, “Even if it takes a long time to figure out your product, make sure it has many good aspects such as sustainability, eco friendliness and originality”, and “the little things don’t matter as much as you think they do.”

Mr Ross, Young Enterprise Centre Lead was full of praise, “Having been part of the journey from the outset it’s great to see the brilliant outcomes – everyone has learnt so much.”
