Aber’s Den Student Business Competition

Aber's Den

Aber's Den

05 December 2013

On the 2nd December, The Biz hosted Aber’s Den, a Dragons’ Den-style business competition, from which a pair of lucky winners won a free trip to Barcelona. The Dragons were Steve McGuire, Julie McKeown, Tony Orme and Victoria Kearney from Electrical Estimates, a local entrepreneur. 

Six teams presented their business pitches to the panel of judges and each team was given £75,000 to invest in a commercial property in Aberystwyth town centre. In their presentations, the teams had to demonstrate profitability, creativity, marketing and presentation style.

The teams were scored against the required criteria which resulted in a winning team called ‘The Morning After’.

Kieren Allen and Charlie Burman, both SMB students, won the prize of a free trip to Barcelona and are delighted with their success.

All teams displayed huge efforts with their presentations and it was interesting to see what students thought was needed in the town centre.
