Hogan Lovells has hosted the grand final of the Mosaic APAX Enterprise Challenge 2013. The Enterprise Challenge is run by Mosaic, a pro bono client of the legal firm. It runs a number of mentoring programmes championed by Muslims and aims to raise the aspirations of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds by introducing them to positive role models and mentors.
More than 3,000 students from around 80 schools have taken part in the challenge, which is a business-related competition designed to encourage enterprise skills among 11–16 year olds.
The competition tests students’ abilities to understand key business concepts and to present a unique business idea to a judging panel of experts, including co-chief executive officer of Hogan Lovells, David Harris.
The grand final saw teams from Beechwood School, Carr Manor Community, Handsworth Wood Girls’ Academy, and Slough and Eton compete with last year’s winner Southfields Academy.
Winner Slough and Eton school developed a mobile phone app proposal designed to keep parents informed about what their child was up to at school.
