Founder Graham Shapiro, driving force behind The Graham Shapiro Foundation Enterprise Challenge, was clear about what this will achieve:
“We are very proud to support this and the entrepreneurs of the University of Chester . The Graham Shapiro Foundation recognises the latent potential that young entrepreneurs hold, for themselves, the wider community and the greater good.
Our objectives are clear: we want to give them every possible encouragement to realise their dreams. The Enterprise Challenge is focused firmly upon stimulating young people to step forward with confidence and take pride in their ambitions, by providing a strong incentive, one that will effectively transform vision into enterprise. Our goal is nothing less than to give them a taste of their own success.
Special thanks to ARCET Global and our incredible panel of judges John M. Mohin OBE D.Univ , Cody Gapare (CMgr MCMI MBA), Joel Blake OBE , Alissa Koopal , Rob McKay , Martin Nolan.”
