12 to 16 years old?
Let's get you excited about business

The world is changing.  Rapidly.  Knowing about business is becoming a critical life skill.

The 'Young Entrepreneurs Academy' was created by Bluebox Corporate Finance with incredible support from Francis Holland School and some of the UK's leading young entrepreneurs.  Driven by a passion to share their knowledge, encourage the next generation and inspire entrepreneurialism, these entrepreneurs have given their time to create engaging content that provides telling insight into the real world.   

The teen experience starts with a 20-part interactive video series called Basics of Business: 20 Quick Hits. Real life video content alongside great graphics and illustration, our series has been produced to inspire, teach and test the real-life business skills of the leaders, game-changers and thinkers of tomorrow.  

Accessible to 12-16 year olds across the UK, the Basics of Business: 20 Quick Hits covers the most important topics to 'real-world' educate and inspire tomorrow's talent.  Successful graduates are awarded a YEA Diploma.

 

No business experience or prior knowledge is necessary, but we will only enrol young entrepreneurs who have the appetite to learn.  

 

Young entrepreneurs need real-life skills to create, nurture and scale a business.
