BBC Apprentice finalist Jamie Lester launches entrepreneur award for local girl’s school
Former BBC Apprentice candidate (series 6) and local businessman, Jamie Lester, is proud to announce that he has joined forces with Fulham comprehensive school for girls, Lady Margaret School. Together they have launched the ‘Lady Margaret Entrepreneur of the Year’ award, which aims to encourage entrepreneurialism.
The award has been designed for the school’s Year 9 Enterprise students, who have been set a competition to create a business plan which will bring an influx of commerce to the Parsons Green area.
Jamie Lester, who successfully launched property agency, Haus Properties, in November 2011, is dedicated to supporting schools in order to encourage more business enterprise. He comments: “It is essential for students to feel inspired and able to turn their talents and ideas into reality. From a young age I was driven by business, which led me to indentify the potential to start my own property investment company by the age of 24.”
Mrs Bucknall, Head of Design and Technology, comments: “We are thrilled that Jamie has launched a new school award that encourages our students to consider entrepreneurship as a potential future career path. It will stand them in good stead for the future and their enthusiasm was evident at the launch. It is particularly exciting to work on an enterprise project with such a successful role model and someone who cares about the local community.”
The entries will be judged by Jamie Lester and Mrs Bucknall and the winner of the ‘Lady Margaret Entrepreneur of the Year’, will be announced at the school’s Jubilee Garden Party on 23rd June at Lady Margaret School, Parson's Green.
