Do you want to be your own boss?  

If you’re 18 to 30, living in the UK and have a business idea or some ideas to explore, our Enterprise programme could be for you. 

We work with 18 to 30-year-olds to turn big ideas into a business reality through our Enterprise programme. From training and mentoring support to funding and resources, we're with you every step of the way. 

Whether it’s from a parent who champions your every move, your friend when you need a second pair of eyes, or from your future business partner who crunches numbers better than you ever could. You have the ideas needed to carve out your own success, but it’s that support from those who believe in you that enables you and the next business leaders to thrive.

Our programme kicks off with a free information session in your local area, and we'll tell you how we can support you and, if you're still keen, we'll also invite you onto our three-day interactive workshop. 

You'll get to meet other like-minded people and have the chance to tap into a business expert, covering everything from business planning and marketing to sales, budgeting and tax. 

After this, it's time to start building your business. We'll support you to plan and test your ideas and give you the opportunity to apply for funding. That way, you'll be ready to meet our Business Launch Group at the end of the process. 

Once you've launched your business, we'll provide you with an experienced business mentor who will be on hand to share advice every step of the way - for up to two years.
