Aspire's Enterprise Challenge 2020

Monday 20th January - Friday 29th May

We're delighted to be launching a brand new Enterprise Challenge in January 2020 to celebrate the power of social enterprise and the impact that profit for purpose can have on tackling complex social issues. We are looking for Oxfordshire based companies and secondary schools to enter teams into our first ever Enterprise Challenge. Here's how it works:

  • We'll give you a £50 start-up fund and 10 weeks to turn this into as much profit as possible for Aspire, helping us to continue our vital work tackling homelessness and poverty across Oxfordshire.
  • Ideas could include running pop-up cafes, selling recycled items such as keyrings or badges, running cake sales or fashion shows and so much more!
  • We will offer ongoing support, ideas, fundraising advice and tons of motivation!
  • We will hold an Awards Ceremony in June 2020 for all teams who take part, with a range of awards available.

Why take part in our new Enterprise Challenge?

  • It's a perfect way to boost team well-being and motivation in your company while helping to reduce homelessness, poverty, re-offending and disadvantage in your community.
  • Students can learn valuable, hands-on business skills and will be supported throughout the challenge.
  • Great opportunity to find out more about the value of social enterprise and to be part of the exceptional enterprise movement in Oxfordshire.

Interested? To find out more and sign up for the challenge, please email [email protected]. Places in our first challenge are limited so we'd encourage you to get in touch as soon as you can!

We would like to sincerely thank our sponsor Cherwell College for generously providing the start-up funds for our new Enterprise Challenge.
