BiG Challenge for DLA
Multinational law firm DLA Piper has sponsored this year’s BiG Challenge, so that a lucky group of Sheffield pupils will get the opportunity to travel to Hong Kong.
The scheme is a competition run across Sheffield schools, where teams are given start-up funds of £25. They must come up with an innovative business idea and grow the business for six months. Pupils must display teamwork and commercial awareness, and the ultimate goal of the venture is to make as much profit as possible.
DLA’s choice of location is in keeping with their global presence and they hope to encourage the aspirations of Sheffield youngsters with their incredible incentive. With over 320 entries already, the legal leaders have made a promising contribution to business in the community.
