Micro-Tyco place winners

Castlemilk High students win 2 places out of 200 UK wide to undertake ASPIRE Week with Deloitte through the Micro-Tyco Challenge

 Micro-Tyco is designed to liberate entrepreneurial thinking across our whole society. The ‘Micro-Tyco Method’ and its combination of inspiration, knowledge and networks is so effective WildHearts was awarded the ‘Social Innovator Award’ from Babson College, Boston, the world’s top school for entrepreneurship. So far over 34,000 Micro-Tycos from 19 countries have taken part.

Although we are still awaiting the final figures to come in to see where each school is placed, both Jordan Richardson and William Smith beat off stiff competition around the nation to secure just 2 of 200 places UK wide to take part in ASPIRE, which is Deloitte’s work experience programme.

Jordan and William were supported by fellow students, staff and school partners, Irene Yuile, Employment & Skills Manager, Castlemilk Youth Complex & BeYonder Ltd to challenge their way through the month to become Global Ethical Investors. Many entrepreneurial activities were thought up by Jordan, William and fellow students which gave them all a chance to flex their entrepreneurial muscles. There were many challenges along the way and obstacles to overcome which added to the excitement and personal growth of all students, however it is fair to say the most engaging activity was the Krispy Kreme Coffee Morning which was very well attended.

Both Jordan and William attended a celebration event at Deloitte on Tuesday 15th March with other winning students giving them an opportunity to connect with some of the Deloitte team. Wildhearts are so impressed by the diaries submitted by Jordan and William for their Micro-Tyco challenge, they have now been asked to write personal testimonials about their experience and personal growth achieved.

The capital raised from all will go to creating many micro loans for people, particularly women in developing countries to empower their way out of poverty.
