Peter Jones CBE today announces the eight teams of budding entrepreneurs that have reached the final of the nationwide enterprise competition, Tycoon.

2017 has been another great year for the Peter Jones Foundation.
To date, we have worked with over 450 schools, whom we have given more than £380,000 of funding to allow 8,688 students to start their first business. We have also supported over 3,500 students to secure a recognised qualification in Enterprise.
Of course, none of this would have been possible without the help of our valued partners and supporters and we wanted to take the time to say thank you.
Wishing you the very best for 2018,
Peter, Jonny and the PJF team
