Looking for a fun first step into the world of business that can be delivered by teachers and parents, or led by the young people themselves?

10X DIY is a hypothetical project for young people to imagine what business they could create with £10, without producing or selling goods.

10X DIY can be used as a stand-alone project or as a way for young people to kick start their 10X ideas so they are ready for the 10X Challenge. The resources offer flexibility so young people can learn how to start a business whether they are in school or at home.


How does it work?

During the project young people work through the guide and templates provided to create, research, plan and then pitch a business.

The project is designed to be completed with minimal supervision and we have provided all the resources required to take part, including:

  • 10X DIY Guide
  • Market Research Survey Template
  • Business Plan Template
  • Sales Pitch Template


Why get involved?

10X DIY helps students to develop key skills, including:

  • Creativity
  • Communication – written and verbal
  • Planning and organisation
  • Problem solving
  • Commercial awareness
