Little Acorn Announced as Tycoon in Schools Finalists

Tuesday 14th February 2017

On Monday 13 February, Peter Jones CBE announced Little Acorn, a team of budding entrepreneurs from Queen Anne’s, as one of eight teams who will attend Buckingham Palace for the awards ceremony on Monday 6 March.

The team of seven U4 students officially launched their business idea to market in October, which produces handmade, decorative family trees. It is an even greater achievement due to the expansion of the competition into primary schools. Over 100 teams went up against each other by starting their own businesses and trading between October and December.

Little Acorn stood out. After receiving a £174 start-up loan from the Peter Jones Foundation, they had a final profit ratio of an outstanding 189%.

Well done girls and good luck at the finals!
