Inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs

13 to 17 years old? Let's get you
excited about business!

The world is changing rapidly. We believe that knowing about 'business' will be an increasingly important life skill for the generation of tomorrow. ​

 

The 'Young Entrepreneurs Academy' is a not-for profit initiative created by a team of three passionate individuals with the incredible support of some amazing partners including UCL School of Management, The Prince's Trust, Francis Holland School and some of the UK's leading entrepreneurs.  Starting with a trial back in 2019 and through a subsequent pilot with Francis Holland School in 2020, the Young Entrepreneurs Academy is now proud to announce the launch of our 20 part interactive video learning series,​ 'The Basics of Business: 20 Quick Hits'.

The series comprise twenty  interactive and engaging episodes - each around ten minutes long - designed to teach the real-life basics of business and includes inspirational stories from our incredible Resident Entrepreneurs, who have kindly shared their wisdom, insights and secrets of both success and failure.  ​

 

A CV-enhancing certificate is awarded on successful completion of the series, along with the chance to enter our very own Dragon’s Den competition and the opportunity to pitch your business plan to our VIP dragons to secure investment of up to £2,000 for your business idea. The Young Entrepreneurs Academy will be  providing a broader offering in 2025 with the introduction of both our internship and mentoring programmes.  We aim to offer all our content for FREE through the support of generous corporate sponsors who share our vision of promoting entrepreneurship to the youth of tomorrow.
