Business students put their entrepreneurial skills to the test as part of the national event Enterprise Week.

One group of students took part in the Make Your Mark Challenge 2008 - coming up with a product inspired by Olympic values - while another helped raise money for the One Water charity, which builds pumps in the third world.

The 24 students on the BTEC National Diploma in Business who took part in the Make Your Mark Challenge designed an online information service about athletes and culture which would be translated into 60 different languages, during a day at London Metropolitan University.

They had to come up with an idea, look at their potential competitors, consider how to make their business idea profitable, and create a 'Dragon's Den' style pitch. Students had business experts from industry to help them with their final presentations.

They also learned from top speakers from industry, including Lord Bilimoria, Founder of Cobra Beer.

BTEC First Diploma Business Students raising money for the charity had to come up with a strategy to sell water and sweets at College for a profit.

Swaran Johal, Curriculum Course Leader in Business at Uxbridge College, said: "This event was a terrific opportunity for these students to learn more about business and flex their entrepreneurial muscles, as well as finding out about life at university. These kind of events are a regular part of study at Uxbridge College and really add value to what is taught on a day to day basis."
