We are really excited to announce that we have partnered with The Juici Jerk Foundation to create an exciting programme for aspiring entrepreneurs aged 16-25! THE 8-week programme will bring together a community of young, aspiring entrepreneurs in a fun, engaging and informative environment to to promote diversity and representation in future business.
Who are Juici Jerk?
What is the Elevate Programme?
Together with Juici Jerk, we wanted to give young aspiring entrepreneurs from low socio-economic backgrounds the chance to build their skills and get a flying start in an area that they often don’t have the means or connections to get into.
Together, we have created The Elevate Programme as a way of providing expert knowledge, experience and growth services to equip young people with the tools to start, thrive and sustain in the world of entrepreneurship.Our pilot programme will involve mentoring, expert workshops and learning opportunities to develop understanding of how to set up a business, gain new skills, knowledge and experience within their chosen field. They will learn all about creating business plans, budgeting, marketing a business and how to deliver a killer pitch. Young people will also be paired up with a 1-1 mentor with expert entrepreneurship experience for the duration of the programme and beyond to help guide and advise them. The programme will work towards creating a business pitch to be given in the final session, and the winning pitch will receive funding to support their business plan.
