Help us shape tomorrow’s entrepreneurs today.
Most successful entrepreneurs begin to acquire the mindset they need at an early age; just look at the 11 year old girl pictured above. She's one of our mini-CEOs :-)
....and many of them just can’t wait to get going. We’ve found that kids are straining at the leash by the time they reach their teens. They’re wanting to cut their teeth on business ideas and selling strategies long before the average university student has sobered up from Fresher’s Week.
But – and this ‘but’ especially applies to young boys and girls from disadvantaged and minority backgrounds – these potential business drivers need to be equipped with the kind of fundamental skills and experience that will enable them to realise their ideas and enterprising spirit.
That’s where we come in. And, hopefully, you.
We’re Ultra Education. Our remit is to help young people, especially those from under-represented communities to gain the confidence and knowledge that will turn them into tomorrow’s entrepreneurs. These are often girls and boys for whom conventional education doesn’t necessarily provide the perfect fit.
Ultra Education helps them acquire essential skills like critical thinking and financial literacy. We show them the importance of good research, the benefits of personal branding, and the value of making and maintaining connections. We encourage them to develop not just confidence but resilience too – because success doesn’t always come first time around.
All these assets will stand them in good stead for managing their career and life choices. By helping young people from under-represented and underprivileged backgrounds to understand how to launch their own enterprises, Ultra Education also gives them the confidence to manage the whole ‘business of life’.
Ultra Education’s aim is to assist these energetic girls and boys to become key drivers and contributors to the workforce as the UK economy works its way out of the troubles that currently beset it. But, right now, they could do with your help too.
ENTRPRENEURSHIP isn't just about starting a business; that's just one possible outcome. It's a mindset with skills (like critical thinking, creativity, handling adversity, management and personal branding) that are just as valuable in starting and running their own business as they are working for an organisation like yours; big or small.
PLEASE give as much as you can and please bear in mind, we've been approved for extra funding from the BA Better World Community Fund! In order to secure this funding we must reach our target of £50K overall. So if we can raise at least £25K from our amazing community, British Airways will support us with £25K too!
THANK YOU ;-)
