WISH UPON A JAR ANNOUNCED AS TYCOON IN SCHOOLS FINALISTS

Friday 9th February 2018

On Wednesday 7 February, Peter Jones CBE announced Wish Upon A Jar, a team of budding entrepreneurs from Queen Anne’s, as one of eight teams from the Tycoons in Schools competition, who will attend Buckingham Palace for the awards ceremony on Thursday 1 March. This year, the stakes were higher than ever before with almost 400 teams of children as young as five went head-to-head, starting their own businesses and trading between October and December 2017.

The team of 4 U4 students, Emelia, Lucy, Pandora and Freya officially launched their business idea to market in October, the team set up a personalised gift company selling necklaces, keyrings and large decorative jars.

The girls each took on a role in the company, it was great to see their can-do positive attitude.

Freya: I am the managing director of Wish Upon A Jar. I believe I am good for this job because I am organised and can get thing done on time but with good quality.
Pandora: I am the marketing director of Wish Upon A Jar and I am good for this role as I can make eye-catching designs for bold posters, and know different ways to gain peoples attention to our products
Lucy: I am the finance director and I believe I am good for this job because I am good at maths and understand how to make good financial decisions.
Emelia: I am the sales director of our business and think I am good for this job because I am organised and aware of good ways to present our product and provide information the customers. I am persuasive and determined.

Delighted by the inspirational businesses in the final, Peter Jones CBE said:

“I‘ve been blown away by the ambitious and inventive businesses that have been started as part of this year’s Tycoon competition. It will be a great honour to announce the winners at a ceremony at Buckingham Palace in March, alongside HRH The Duke of York KG, Patron of the Peter Jones Foundation. I look forward to meeting all of the students and teams and hearing even more about their business ventures.”

After receiving a start-up loan from the Peter Jones Foundation, the girls had a final profit ratio of an outstanding 243%.

Well done girls and good luck at the finals.
