Starting my own business

What do Zoella, Richard Branson, Joe Sugg, Alfie Deyes, Stampylonghead and Jamie Oliver all have in common?

They all started their own businesses before they were 25. Look at them now!

Zoella, Joe Sugg, Alfie Deyes and Joseph Garrett all did it from the comfort of their own home with just a computer and a camera.

Last year there was over 26,000 young people under the age of 21 registered as directors of companies,[1]with many of them operating in the tech and digital sectors – App developers, Coders, Vloggers, you name it!

Did you know that between 2014 and 2016 we helped over 80 young people to start their own businesses?

You don’t have to have loads of money, be old, have been to university, or even have to invent something; if you have a product, or an idea or a service that you can offer that someone else will pay for, that’s business!

We are here to help you explore your ideas, provide support and work with you to develop your ideas and businesses.
