We're still collecting donations

On the 29th August 2022 we'd raised £20,075 with 26 supporters in 21 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

We require funding for organising 12 months Entrepreneurship & Technology program taps into the creativity of young people to position them to be able to succeed in any economic climate. 

 With the global pandemic disrupting employment and traditional education, this is the perfect moment to inspire the entrepreneurial spirit in young people. As young people look toward their future, they need new options. 

The beneficiaries are 100 % young people under 25 years old and it will also benefit the local community when these youths starting their own business. and we are planning to help 70. The project would cost £20,000.00 .

The outcomes after mentoring students for 10 years, we know with the right support, young people can tap into their creativity and start their own successful businesses. In our 360 day Workshops program, seasoned entrepreneurs will coach young people on how to create a business plan, develop an elevator speech, form a business entity, set up a line of credit, register for a tax ID number, trademark or patent a creation, get a business loan, create a budget, invoice and get paid with bitcoin, and more.

The Long-Term Impact for the entrepreneurship program offers young people a high level of understanding about the business world and expands their employment options significantly. It positions young people to be able to work in any economic climate because they know how to successfully run a business anywhere. If they choose to build a business early, they can begin to build wealth that will position them for life success.

Most schools teach children to become an employee. But the global pandemic has disrupted economies and education around the world. There are millions fewer British jobs available than before the pandemic. Students have lost ground in reading and math over the last year, and many won't graduate.

There is a need for this project because so many youths will struggle and compete to find employment that pays a living wage because most have no idea what it takes to establish their own business. 

After the event, we will get the feedback for those who attended and participated. The plan to learn from it and use this learning to shape future projects. 

Our PR/media campaign for the grant would be our website, social media and word of mouth which is the most valuable form of advertising is still.
