17.03.16 - Young Enterprise Team Reaches Area Final

Congratulations to Dinomite, our Young Enterprise team, on reaching the South Derbyshire Area Finals.

Dinomite’s team is made up of 14 Ockbrook School students. The company’s product range is based on fun, hand illustrated dinosaur themed merchandise, including ‘tea-rex’ mugs, stickers, gift tags and cards. Sales have been excellent, with particular success at the school’s Winter Fayre in November and at the Derby INTU trade fair in February.

Laura Cook, joint managing director of Dinomite, says: “Dinomite company members have contributed an excellent array of useful skills and ideas towards the launch of our company and development of our products. This has enabled Dinomite to thrive as a company and establish a clear brand identity.

“Our team has remained enthusiastic throughout the year as we took our ‘punny’ dinosaur themed cartoons and showcased them in a range of products such as greetings cards, stickers and high quality, full colour printed mugs. The high morale of the team and each individual director’s involvement within the tasks set has made the running of Dinomite a thoroughly enjoyable experience.”

The Young Enterprise Area Final and Awards Evening will be held on 23rd March 2016 at the University of Derby, Kedleston Road, Derby DE22 1GB starting at 5.45pm. The evening includes presentations from the six short-listed finalist companies, and the top three companies will go forward to the Derbyshire County Final.

We wish Dinomite the best of luck in reaching the Derbyshire Finals.
