A group of young entrepreneurs has been successful at two trade fairs.

Corby Business Academy’s Young Enterprise company Kraftees won the two awards at fairs in Wellingborough and Northampton.

Members of the company manned stalls at Young Enterprise fairs in the Swansgate Shopping Centre in Wellingborough on Saturday, December 1, and in the Grosvenor Centre, Northampton, on Sunday, December 2.

Members of Kraftees sold their products – Christmas cards and USB sticks on wristbands - to the public alongside Young Enterprise teams from other county schools.

The teams were judged at each event and awards given out. In Wellingborough Kraftees was given the award for Best Sales and Marketing Strategy and at the fair in Northampton the team was awarded Best Trade Stand.

Young Enterprise link teacher Alexandra Allan said: “The judges were extremely impressed and the feedback was amazing.”

Shaun Coleman from RS Components, which has been supporting Kraftees, said: “At the trade fair in Wellingborough the students from Kraftees were professional and they were all good ambassadors for Corby Business Academy.

“They did well for their first fair and won their awards for Best Trade Stand and Best Sales and Marketing Strategy, the latter of which is a key one in business.”
