Journey from an Idea to a Running Business: Youth, Tech, Enterprise
If a person is young, where are they going to get their inevitable knocks from? We endeavour to follow a model which allows for mistakes, and offers a chance to get a grant. This is non-repayable funding, which also means reporting is made as easy as possible. Of course, this grant can only be received once. It is a government grant, which means that we assume that you will later be able to attract private investment, or apply for other forms of support

The most important thing is to cultivate this idea of giving something a go early on – from school even. It should then be pushed further when these young people become students. We should give them the tools to make investments that may be risky, but which will only have a positive effect and not lead to any reputational damage. That’s because even if a private investor makes an unsuccessful attempt, if they go about it correctly, it will be a positive experience
