Livestreaming The Young Enterprise Awards 2020

Over 100 students came together to celebrate the Dorset Young Enterprise Awards this year, with one difference… Everything was celebrated online!

For the past year, budding young entrepreneurs across Dorset had been working hard to create companies, products & business initiatives ready to be judged at the Young Enterprise Awards 2020. However, with the Covid-19 restrictions that recently came into place, these awards had to be cancelled. This was a shame for the young entrepreneurs. They had put a lot of effort into their companies and it wasn’t fair that they wouldn’t be able to show this. So, we decided to step in and re-create their award ceremony virtually!

Working with Young Enterprise rep Mel Bissagar, we were able to walk her through all the stages of the livestream production. This involved:

  • Creating the content
  • Organising the technical delivery
  • Facilitating the shows guests

The virtual event was a success! It was broadcast to over 400 live viewers, each student company was able to showcase their company and the winners were announced live in-front of their family and peers.

“…I’m not a techie, so initially I was nervous about hosting the livestream, but you guys made it so easy. Our plan was just for me to announce the winners from my phone, so to have all the graphics & smooth transitions made the whole thing look so fancy…”
Mel, Young Enterprise
