October 2011 – UPprentice challenged launched  

In a bid to raise funds for the charity Glad’s House the UPprentice invites teams to test their business acumen and entrepreneurial skills in a bid to raise the most money for the charity over a six week period.

Each team will receive £100 at the launch event in order to start their own business venture, and whichever team turns in the largest profit at the end of the six week period, will be crowned the winning team at an awards dinner at the Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square, London  on 23rd April 2012.

There will also be awards for the most money raised per team member as well as for other categories, including most innovative fundraising idea.
