This is a new business set up by the students themselves with a little bit of money and support from a few senior business people.
The aim is to find entrepreneurial students and set up great opportunities to learn about BUSINESS in their gap year between school and university, or during their university placements.
This is absolutely for people who from a young age have been fascinated by business and and really want to LEARN something, not just do data entry... they want a chance to get their hands dirty and find out what they can do... The business sponsors will have been in their shoes 20 years before, will recognise how hard it is to get this kind of experience and having had a v successful career themselves, be happy to take a student on and show them the ropes...
Two main audiences:
17-22 year old bright kids, probably heading for university, that are confident and entrepreneurial and ambitious
successful 35-55 year old senior business people with an altruistic bent
starts in the UK market, launch is in 2 weeks
we are staring from scratch, and at first just need a logo, but will need business cards and headed paper it in about a months time...
so a contemporary logo that ideally has a single or two dominant colours that will help identify the brand and make us stand out..
our nearest competitor is http://www.yini.org.uk/ so it should look different to that ..
here is our intro blurb:
THE BASIC CONCEPT
Take a bright, enthusiastic 17-22 year old that shows great promise for a career in business once they have finished their education...
.. match with a business that could use an extra (super cheap) pair of hands, but with no time to sift through cvs or interview weak candidates, or hold their hand much when they start .
If you could use an exceptional, hand picked, hard working, low maintenance youngster for anything from a week to a year email firstname.lastname@example.org a super quick profile of the job and we will see who we can come up with
