IDEAS for Own Business UK
If you’re 18 to 30, living in the UK and unemployed, or working fewer than 16 hours a week, and have a business idea or some ideas to explore, our Enterprise programme could be for you.
Kicking off with a free information session in your local area, we'll tell you how we can support you and, if you're still keen, we'll also invite you onto our four-day interactive workshop.
You'll get to meet other like-minded people and have the chance to tap into an 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.
