Our Young Business Owners

Business Studies Young Enterprise Group

The Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme (YES) is an opportunity for students to unleash their inner entrepreneur and experience the start-up world first-hand. It is an experiential programme where students set up and run a real business. Each YES company creates their own product or service and brings this to market.

Through The Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme, students will:

  • Learn about business planning and operations
  • Develop a range of personal and business skills
  • Consult with and create networks in their community

Below are the 2021 businesses run by students at Westlake Girls High School (listed alphabetically).
