Our Big Creative Training learners put on their entrepreneurial hats to design, create and sell their own T-shirts and tote bags in Walthamstow Market as part of the MyBnk Business Battle project, supported by the London Stock Exchange Group, which helps youths from London’s poorest boroughs learn negotiating and customer interaction skills. Our learners managed to make a £50 profit from an interest-free £50 micro loan in four days of selling. MyBnk is a UK-based charity who’s mission is to teach young people how to manage their money and set up their own enterprise. MyBnk’s experts deliver practical enterprise experiences by giving young people access to interest-free loans and market places to set up their own initiatives.
