2 Gratefully supported by: © Sheffield City Council 2010 Welcome to Global Entrepreneurship Week Last year, over 32,000 events run in 88 countries, attended by more than 7.5 million people. “Entrepreneurs are not born, they are made.

4 Gratefully supported by: © Sheffield City Council 2010 Background In our town/city many shop spaces have become empty as businesses struggle to survive in difficult economic times.

5 Gratefully supported by: © Sheffield City Council 2010 Background This year MYM2 would like the entrepreneurs of the future (that’s YOU!) to think about the best way to use one of these spaces.

6 Gratefully supported by: © Sheffield City Council 2010 The Challenge Sheffield currently has a number of empty shops. As a young person visiting the City Centre, what would you like one of those shops to be? A club? A shopping space? An internet cafe? You can design whatever you want it to be as long as it will make money as a business.

7 Gratefully supported by: © Sheffield City Council 2010 The Process Select an empty retail space in the Town/City Centre – There are different sizes and costs to choose from Brainstorm different ideas to select the best use of space Design the space Work out the finance – cost and profit Decide who your customers will be and how you will reach them Prepare a report and presentation

8 Gratefully supported by: © Sheffield City Council 2010 Task 1 Choosing your business – Develop your business ideas. Will you offer products or services? What competition is there at the moment? Who will your customers be? – Do you want to provide something for young people, for families or adults? – Is there something that you think is missing from the Town/City Centre that could make YOU money?

13 Gratefully supported by: © Sheffield City Council 2010 Task 2 Setting up your business – Select the best space for your idea. The bigger the space, the higher the cost to set up, but perhaps you can make more money when the business is running? – How will you design the internal space, do you need special equipment? What budget should you set for the furniture and decorating costs? Create a plan to show what the space will look like and an image of the front of the shop.
