Some Frequently Asked Questions about the Fiver Challenge

Fiver from Home

Fiver from Home is an adapted version of the Fiver Challenge that allows students to imagine what business they could create with just a £5 note.

This is a mini home-based project which aims to inspire primary age children to actively learn, develop and grow their entrepreneurial skills. 

It will not involve any trading of products but will focus on all the preceding stages - initial concept ideas, market research, logo development, business planning and a sales pitch. 

All Fiver from Home documents and guidance will be released onto the platform after the Easter break, so register now to have access on the day of release!

Funding for the Fiver Challenge

As Fiver from Home is a hypothetical project there is no actual money involved so no funding is required for your pupils to get involved.
