They will need to create a prototype e-bike and plan and host their own launch event, at which they will attempt to sell their new bikes to some of the UK’s biggest cycle retailers.
Half of each team heads to Nottingham to develop their new bikes, where indecision sends one team into a wheel spin, while for the other team colour clashes nearly cause a collision.
The other half of each team stays in London to choose accessories and create marketing materials. There are tough negotiations and, for one team, a last-minute change in direction.
At their events, both teams try to peddle their bikes to retailers. Poor pricing strategies and pushy tactics means sales are an uphill struggle. Then, in the boardroom, the wheels come off and one member of the losing team is told – “You’re Fired!”
Total sales for this task £437,700.
Now lets look at the other team.
Total sales for this task £1,265,210.
This team Smashed it big time.
