SG Presents You - Junior Edition Y10 Students

Let's inspire and empower our future entrepreneurs together! 💪🚀 #SGJuniorPitchBattle #YoungEntrepreneurs #StartupGrindGibraltar

🚀 Join Us for SG 'Presents You' Junior Edition Y10 Students Pitch Battle!

Are you ready for an exhilarating showcase of young talent and entrepreneurial spirit? Startup Grind Gibraltar proudly presents the Junior Edition Y10 Students Pitch Battle! It's an opportunity to witness the next generation of budding entrepreneurs take the stage.

🌟 What's Happening?

In this exciting Dragon's Den-style event, we've opened our doors to Year 10 students, who will showcase their innovative business ideas and compete for fantastic prizes. These talented young minds have been tasked with crafting a business plan they can execute with a mere £100 investment.

🔥 The Challenge:

Each team, composed of three to four students, hailing from the Year 10 GCSE Business Studies class, is tasked with creating a compelling pitch presentation. A panel of seasoned investors will be on the lookout for the most promising business proposition. The winning team will be awarded a £100 investment to kickstart their entrepreneurial journey. However, that's just the beginning!

💡 Empowering Young Minds:

We're not just empowering one team; we're nurturing an entire generation of entrepreneurs. While only one group will secure the initial investment, all other teams will receive the chance to progress with their business plans, albeit on a self-financed basis.

🗓️ Mark Your Calendar:

The teams have until March 2024 to put their business plans into action and report back on their successes, including the profits they've earned. 

We invite the local business community to be a part of this transformative experience. Register to attend today or if you would like to sponsor drop an email to

Your support is the only way we can continue with the work we do providing this platform locally and can help shape the future of these budding entrepreneurs and contribute to the growth of Gibraltar's business ecosystem.
