Bright idea scoops second place

Dragons den at South Thames College in LondonThree enterprising business students from the Wandsworth Campus of South Thames College beat nineteen teams from across the borough to secure 2nd place in the Wandsworth Dragons’ Den competition.

Alexandra Munteanu, 18, Florence Nuamah, 17, and Aimal Nashat, 19, as AFA, pitched their product to the panel of expert judges at the Civic Centre in Wandsworth. The judges were impressed with their idea of a light that clips inside your bag, especially as they had made their own prototype. Despite their confident presentation, the team narrowly missed out on the top spot to Graveney School.

Florence said: “We worked well as a team and had a lot of fun so I’m happy with the result. I never thought I’d be standing in such a huge room presenting in front of so many people so I feel like I’ve achieved a lot.”

Dragons Den at South Thames College in LondonRun by the Mayor of Wandsworth, the competition was open to young people in the borough aged 16 –19. South Thames College had two teams in the final, team Power of 6 also gave a confident presentation of their product of an all-in-one toothbrush to the judges.

Level 1 Business tutor, Gilly Walker, said: “Throughout the competition process I’ve seen the students go from young teenagers to young adults. The skills they’ve learnt are amazing. Not just the presentation skills, but communication, working in a team and meeting deadlines. They’re transferable to other social enterprise projects they’re working on, but more importantly they’re transferable to the workplace.” 

The group won £100 and are yet to decide how they’ll be spending their prize.
