Ryman National Enterprise Challenge
The Ryman National Enterprise Challenge continues to motivate and inspire secondary school students to achieve amazing things. The brainchild of Cousins Ben and Michael Dyer, the initiative is now the largest enterprise and employability competition for high schools up and down the country.
The National Enterprise Challenge has been supported by Ryman for the last 6 years and in our Chairman Theo Paphitis’ own words "Some of the best pitches I’ve seen on The Ryman National Enterprise Challenge over the years have been even better than the ones I saw in the den!”
So what have the next generation of businessmen and women been thinking up? The 2018 key stage 3 challenge saw a group of 14-year-old students from Wimbledon High School become stationery entrepreneurs after TV Dragon, Theo, gave them a surprise shot at bringing their designs to life. Runners up in the overall competition, their eye-catching design and out of the box product concept caught Theo’s eye so he invited them to pitch their idea to the Ryman Buying Team.
The Buyers were blown away and have since worked closely with the children to develop the range, including them in the full product journey; from logos to how the display will look in stores.
