Boost For Young Local Entrepreneurs!

  • 2nd April 2011
  • Students at Herefordshire College of Technology (HCT) have been able to take their entrepreneurial skills to the next level, thanks to the support of local businessman.

    The students, studying an advance diploma in business and finance at HCT, through their company, Majiq, have devised a practical shirt roller, that helps to reduce creasing in transit, and approached Luke Conod, Managing Director of FIT, the prestigious en-trend high fashion brand clothing store in Hereford, for assistance in the marketing of their product.

    With a promotional opportunity in the planning, the Majiq team were invited to attend in order to demonstrate their revolutionary new Shirt Roller.

    “I was absolutely delighted to be asked for my input,” said Luke. “The students of today are going to be the business leaders of tomorrow so it’s vitally important that they get every assistance and full support at this early stage in their careers.”

    “At Fit’s new season brands launch party last Thursday, the Young Enterprise Team were introduced to the many Movers and Shakers and business leaders of Hereford and Herefordshire in attendance.”

    “Of course, the Majiq Shirt Roller is now available to buy at FIT. It’s ideal for business trips and travel and I highly recommend it!”
