Million Makers: The Corporate Challenge

Do you want to give your employees a real challenge in the real world? Do you want to put your employees’ business acumen, team working skills, creativity and negotiation expertise to the test?

The Prince’s Trust is challenging teams of employees to come together to raise £1million to change young lives.

This corporate challenge see teams of employees compete across the UK to turn a seed funding investment into a profit of £10,000, by implementing their very own mini enterprise.

 

 Million Makers has been a fantastic initiative for our business. In addition to being a great team-building exercise and raising money for a worthy cause, it has unearthed an innovative and entrepreneurial capability in our people, which we are now starting to see come through in their day jobs as well.
