Drapers Den Success for our students with business idea MotArmour

Share

<p>Six  of our A level Business students have been working very hard since September on  a new business idea, 'MotArmour' which they presented at the Academy Schools&rsquo;  Award – Drapers Den, in central London on 27th November 2017. </a></p>
<p>Having  conducted Market Research, they came up with a suggested solution; a public  protection space for Motorbikes and Mopeds. For a rental fee, owners can be  satisfied with a safe space for their Motorbikes in public areas, along with an  App to compliment the idea. During the preparations the students had dedicated  mentors within the college and they were also coached by mentors from industry  including a central London Advertising agency and BBC3.<br />
  They  developed a solution to help with reducing Motorbike Theft in the UK, which has  become a worrying issue in society. With 3 million pounds worth of bikes stolen  each year our students came up with an invaluable and innovative start up. <br />
  The  students presented their idea and held their own during questioning from the  Drapers Dragons, at The Drapers Hall in Central London. Founded over 600 years  ago, the Drapers&rsquo; Company is an organisation that addresses contemporary issues  and strives to gain new relevance through its close work with various  educational institutions.<br />
  Our  students went on to win joint first place and receive a £2500 grant! They will  be deciding what to use their prize money on in the coming months and will have  their trophy sent down to the college soon. We&rsquo;re very proud of their  resilience and entrepreneurial spirit throughout the whole process. Watch this  space for more information on how MotArmour progresses (and pictures with the  trophy).<br />
  Congratulations  to our winning team members: Salman Hussain, Art Hoti, Jawad Afzali, Neil  Chowtie, Menelik Camobell &amp; Ikrama Bhamjee! </p>
