NEF on hunt for “50 best young entrepreneurs” to join its programme
Programme will help young entrepreneurs get “a business idea off the ground” through personal coaching, business mentoring and paid work placement
The New Entrepreneurs Foundation(NEF) is searching for 50 of the UK’s brightest young business-minded individuals for the latest cohort of its entrepreneur development programme.
The 12-month course will provide the “business critical skills” young business leaders need through a combination of personal coaching, business mentoring, a one-year paid-work placement and access to business networks.
To be eligible, applicants must have recently graduated, with one or more years work experience, or be about to leave higher education. If the latter, they must be either emerging entrepreneurs, early-stage entrepreneurs or career changers.
Neeta Patel, CEO of the New Entrepreneurs Foundation, said: “We want to find those young, aspiring entrepreneurs who dream of running a successful business but need help getting started.
“That is what our programme is about – helping overcome the daunting task of getting a business idea off the ground in the very early days and providing a support network for them to feel safe in taking measured risks.”
