Unocking Young Ambition has officially launched and we are delighted to be supporting this fantastic venture that will give the next generation of entrepreneurs an opportunity to meet and be personally mentored by a successful Scottish entrepreneur.
Young Enterprise Scotland’s Bridge 2 Business programme have teamed up with the Unlocking Ambition programme to launch Unlocking Young Ambition, which provides an inclusive experience for students aged 16-30 from a diverse range of backgrounds.
The students, from around Scotland, have been matched with 13 Unlocking Ambition ambassadors from the £4m flagship Unlocking Ambition Challenge programme originated by the First Minister and delivered this year by Scottish Enterprise. Entrepreneurs receive intensive wrap-around support from a dedicated team to help support and scale their businesses, while having the opportunity to develop their own skills. Forty entrepreneurs were selected for the programme based on the potential economic and social impact of their businesses.
We will be welcoming our students into the MyWay buisness at the start of Novemeber and be setting them a mini-project to build on their skills and add this enterprise mentoring opportunity to their CV.
