Blackstone’s London Office Hosts Workshop with MyBnk and The Princes Trust Programme

This week, Blackstone’s London office hosted a workshop with MyBnk, a 2015 Blackstone Innovation Grant recipient, to provide venture creation support to 11 young people from The Princes Trust Programme. Eight Blackstone employees served as mentors to help the students develop their enterprises by helping them to determine their price points, profit margins, bulk deals and marketing techniques. The young people also presented their overall concept for selling to the Blackstone boardroom. The following day the students came together to sell their products at a London market place, with all profits going to community projects.
