Young Enterprise Awards are the Bee's Knees

A creative business looking to change ‘the world one page at a time’ scooped the company of the year award at a FSB sponsored event this last week. The business, Vision, is the brainchild of pupils at Fortrose High School. Vision Fortrose - YES Awards 2017

A company based in the Highlands, Vision have developed and designed a children’s book called ‘Buzzing Around the World’ to highlight endangered animals through the eyes of bees. The young entrepreneurs are also hoping that their book can boost literacy rates amongst primary school pupils. 

FSB sponsored Scotland’s first Festival of Youth Enterprise at Hampden Park in Glasgow, an event geared to inspire the brightest youngsters from the business world. 

Other winners at the bash, chaired by STV news presenter Rachel McTavish, included Glasgow’s Bon Bon. The young enterprise group, based out of Lochend Community Andy at YES Awards 2017High School, won two awards for creating room fragrances that smell like old fashioned sweets.

Andy Willox, FSB’s Scottish policy convenor who attended the awards, said: “The Festival of Youth Enterprise showcased the best young entrepreneurs Scotland has to offer. It showed that the future of business is in safe hands.

“FSB is proud to sponsor these awards and we urge all schools in Scotland to offer enterprise education to primary and secondary pupils.”
