Brace yourself for the results on Friday

A team of five young entrepreneurs have reached the London-wide final of a business competition with their idea of a colour-changing toothbrush.

The Chameleon Dental team at Bexley Grammar are bracing themselves ahead of the London Young Enterprise Company Programme final, which will be held at Canary Wharf on Thursday.

Should the team of grammar students win, they will be pitted against 13 other teams to be crowned UK Company of the Year, the winner of which then heads for the European finals.

To enter the competition, the team had to come up with a business plan, raise funding, create a product, devised a marketing plan, and write up all their aims, strategies, achievements and results in a business like report.

Chief executive of Young Enterprise, Michael Mercieca, described the awards “the ultimate measure of many months of hard work from the students, representing their creativity, resilience and business acumen”.

Chameleon Dental will go up against four other teams from Barnet, Richmond, Hammersmith & Fulham and Wandsworth on Thursday night.
