The Lincoln Teenage Market, organised by BG Futures at Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU), once again took over part of Lincoln’s City Centre offering young entrepreneurs the opportunity to take their first steps in the business world this month.

This particular event marked two important milestones. Not only was it the Lincoln Teenage Market’s two year anniversary, it was the tenth Teenage Market that organisers Nikki Smith, BG Futures Careers, Employability and Enterprise Advisor and Diane Haines Compliance Officer, have been involved with. For Nikki, the continued success and growth of the market has been incredibly rewarding:

“It has been and is a real pleasure to work alongside my BGU colleagues and the wider community to develop the Lincoln Teenage Market.

“Our traders and performers now range from ages 10 -29 years of age, and the excellent quality of their products and performances is inspiring to see. Alongside this we have seen a significant rise in BGU student engagement with the market; further reinforcing themselves as talented, enterprising, community driven individuals.

“Above all it is very rewarding to see how their self-confidence has grown and continues to grow with every market.”

The Market aims to create enterprising opportunities for both BGU students and the wider local community; offering the City’s future traders and business owners the chance to trial their entrepreneurial ideas in a physical retail space.

Stallholders included entrepreneurs from the BGU Business (Team Entrepreneurship) course, in addition to students from Linkage and Lincoln College who exhibited their work as part of their coursework. The BG Futures Careers, Employability and Enterprise team are keen to work with the local community to continue to develop opportunities for all across the county.

Alongside the colourful and creative stalls, visitors to the market were also treated to an energetic performance by the BGSU Dance Society who were commended by Becky Goodman, Enterprise Development Manager, for their high energy, support for the market, and flair for public performance.

The next Lincoln Teenage Market will be taking place on 1 December in the Lincoln City Square Co-op and it will be swiftly followed by another at the BGU Christmas Extravaganza on 2 December.

If you would like to find out more information or perhaps get involved as a trader or performer at the next event, please contact the Teenage Market team at: teenagemarket@bishopg.ac.uk. Should you wish to talk to a member of the team about any other enterprise query then please email enterprise@bishopg.ac.uk.
