Today we hear from Geoff Leask, CEO of Young Enterprise Scotland about how adults can get involved:

Geoff LeaskEach year YES runs the Tenner Challenge for young people, and due to the success and key learnings from the project - we have launched an adult version. 

The Challenge is easy, take a £10 note and see how much you can generate from that seed capital in one month. 

Young people will be there to provide tips and guidance to help you along the way. Last year the young people averaged £156 profit from their £10, so you may want to listen to what they have to say...

The best team generated over £5,000: so there’s a real challenge if you want one.

This Challenge won’t just change the lives of young people, it can develop skills and display hidden talents for adults too.

Participants will get a chance to work as a team, build commercial skills, see the whole business process, develop creativity and demonstrate talents no-one knew existed.
