Explore Enterprise – Be your own boss!
If you’re aged 18 to 30 and live in the UK, then The Prince’s Trust Explore Enterprise programme might be for you.
AD:VENTURE has been helping start-ups and young businesses, within the Leeds City Region and that are in the first three years of trading, for since 2016. We have partnered with The Trust to expand our reach and support even more young people.
So, how does it work?
Kicking off with a free information session, The Trust’s and AD:VENTURE’s Enterprise programme will explore how you can be your own boss and will tell you how we can support you. And, if you’re still keen, we’ll also invite you onto a four-day interactive workshop.
You’ll get to meet other like-minded people and will have the chance to tap into a business expert, who covers everything from business planning and marketing, to sales, budgeting and tax.
After this, it’s time to start building your business. We’ll help you to plan and test your ideas, and will 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. They will be able to share advice at every step of the way – for up to two years.
If you go on to own a business, you’ll be ready to take advantage of the rest of the support that the Enterprise programme offers. This could mean that you are ready for the coaching stage, or growing stage, and can talk to specialist advisors. You might need access to finance and you’ll be supported through this.
You’ll move through the coaching and growth stages, and will have support on hand to make sure your business reaches its greatest potential.
They say that fortune favours the brave, so start your AD:VENTURE with us and The Trust, today.
