Armagh Students Take Part in Amazon Campus Challenge

Three Armagh SRC students are taking part in the Amazon Campus Challenge. The Amazon Campus Challenge is a competition running across the UK, offering students with an interest in business the opportunity to work with real businesses and start-ups to help them grow their business on Amazon and reach customers around the world.

The competition runs until June 2020, when a panel of UK business leaders will choose the winning teams. Up to £28,000 is up for grabs, with the first place team set to win £10,000. Student teams were tasked with approaching and supporting a company of their choice that has not yet set up an account to sell on Amazon.
