Sixth Form Business Trip: Sleep Pods

Year 12 business studies students visited Podtime.co.uk’s headquarters last week to speak to entrepreneur Jon Gray and look at the manufacturing of his sleep pods.

Jon spoke to the class about how he planned and financed the business and went on to talk about some of the issues involved in managing the business once it was up and running.

The talk covered several business topics the class is studying at
the moment, including market research, sources of finance
and business plans. Finally, the group got to sample his product, enjoying a well-deserved nap in one of the pods.

Adam K said: “It was excellent to see how the topics we have learnt about can be applied in the real world.”
