A team of students from Bolton College has won the regional Enterprise Pitch Challenge at EntrepreneurLIVE! - an enrichment event hosted by Tutor2 at The Lowry, Manchester, for local business students.

In a bid to win the Enterprise Pitch Challenge, nine teams - three of which were from Bolton College - presented their business ideas in front of over 400 students from schools and colleges across the north west, as well as successful entrepreneurs: Mick Jackson, founder of charity, Wild Hearts; Louis Barnett, founder of luxury chocolate brand, Chockolit; Kate Castle, founder of Bog in a Bag - an innovative camping product that got three offers when pitched on the BBC's Dragon's Den; Jacob Hill, founder of camping products supplier, Lazy Camper; Donnie Maclean, founder of multi award-winning range of nutritionally balanced pizzas, Eat Balanced; and Leah Hutcheon, founder of online beauty booking portal, Appointedd.

All three groups from Bolton College made it through to the final, with Business Buddies being crowned the winners. Team members, Phillipa Coucill, 17, Kaytlon Mann, 17, Danielle Roseler, 18, and Danielle Gornall, 19, received £100 and a trophy after presenting their solutions to clearing the mass amount of rubbish that gets left behind after concerts and festivals.

Kathryn Waddington, senior lecturer at Bolton College, said: "We're really proud of all our learners who took part in the Enterprise Pitch Challenge. They all worked extremely hard on their presentations and were fantastic ambassadors for Bolton College's Business Department."
