Pop-Up Bookshop Enterprise Days

HOW IT WORKS

  • Students divide into teams, and learn how to create a brand, plan, put together a pitch, and present a business model to compete for the chance to setup a micro-business and run their very own pop-up bookshop.

  • We turn up with experienced facilitators and all the resources to run a full-day workshop.

  • The students present their pitches in a showcase at the end of the day.

  • Winning teams then run a pop-up bookshop at a later time, turning your school hall in to a vibrant student-run book market. 

  • We come back with the stock for the winning team, so they can sell the actual books that the teams have researched and selected during the enterprise day.

  • The school keeps the profits from the student run pop-up bookshop to use for buying books from the book fair for the school library and book corners.
