Enterprise fellowship alt 747 

Mission: Each month The Trust receives enquiries from some 3,500 young people, wanting to access support through our Enterprise programme.

Sadly, due to the limitations on resources, we are only able to actively support approximately 500 young people through the programme.

Enquiries to the programme continue to increase, due to the current economic climate, and the interest from young people to seek alternatives to ‘standard employment’.

As such the Enterprise Fellowship, a collective of the UK’s leading entrepreneurs is working to enable The Trust to reach more young people and to pass on their experience and expertise to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs.

The key calls to action for our future Fellows:

  • Invest – Help to raise funds to start up further new UK businesses and help to promote youth enterprise to disadvantaged young people in the UK. Enterprise Fellows make a minimum investment of £100,000 over a four year period.
  • Advise – share your expertise with young people, through one to one sessions and round table events on how they can take their business to the next level.
  • Inspire – Share your business expertise and experience and help to inspire and encourage innovation to the next generation of the UK’s entrepreneurs.
  • Endorse – promote youth enterprise and The Prince's Trust Enterprise programme to your peers, government, business and individuals.
