Profile of Max Grodecki from Young Apprentice 2012

Max Grodecki from Kent will perhaps be hoping that his Economics studies will come in handy this year during his battle for success in the BBC’s Young Apprentice series.

The 16 year old A Level student joins 11 other teenagers in the hit BBC series to compete for a cash prize of £25,000 from Lord Sugar to get them started in a business venture. On entering the competition, Max said: “I’m certainly not someone who likes to follow the crowd. I think if you follow the crowd, you don’t get seen.”
