Avid UKHotViews readers will know that our Chairman Richard Holway MBE is a keen supporter of The Prince’s Trust, as indeed is TechMarketView and a great many of our clients and friends in the tech sector. One of the fundraising events that we enjoy following most is the entrepreneurial competition Million Makers, which over the years has literally raised millions to support the Trust’s fantastic work with young people.

Million Makers

The six-month corporate challenge provides a great learning and development platform for employees to build essential business skills and improves motivation. Teams of employees are challenged to turn an initial investment of £1,500 into at least £10,000 profit.

The competition turns ten this year and The Prince’s Trust is hoping it will be another record-breaker, taking the total raised in its first decade to over £10m. We want to build on the legacy already established, and in particular have some healthy competition amongst the technology sector. Past winners (nationally or regionally) have included Dell EMC, Atos, VMWare and CGI.

It would be fantastic to have a record number of teams from the tech sector taking part in 2018. Million Makers launches in late spring so if you’re interested in taking up the challenge you need to talk to the Trust as soon as possible.

If you would like to find out more please get in touch with Eriko Kobayashi from The Prince’s Trust who manages the competition.
