A Young Enterprise team from Corby has become the first in the town to reach the regional final of a competition to find the best budding business minds.

Reflection, from The Kingswood Academy, in the town won the overall best company title at the county final of the Young Enterprise scheme at Northampton University and will now go forward to the regional heat in Nottingham.

Reflection has been mentored by Michelle Duffy from RS Components in Corby, who was the team’s business adviser. She said: “This was my first year in this role and the first time a Corby school has gone this far in the competition. I’m delighted for the team, who thoroughly deserve it, and wish them luck for the regional final.”

RS supports the Young Enterprise scheme through its My Community initiative, which helps employees with fundraising efforts and supports local projects and good causes.

It is the enterprise education charity which gives young people the opportunity to experience the real business world and equip them with skills for their future careers.
