Last week the pilot phase of the Youth Entrepreneurs celebrated the end of its first cohort of participants. This partnership between the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust and Goldsmith University MA Entrepreneurs Programme took five young participants through a series of workshops to build and sustain their business ideas through creative and entrepreneurial thinking.
The programme includes guest speakers, class bases elements, mentoring and culminated in a presentations of their business ideas and a networking event. The programme was put together by an international team of postgraduate student from Goldsmiths currently working towards their MA: in Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship.
The programme was set up to support young people that do not commonly get taught entrepreneurship in school to create their own niches in this ever changing economy. Launched as part of Global Entrepreneurship week in November 2015 the programme has already been awarded a High Impact Award and it is hoped that the programme will be delivered again later in 2016.
Following the final session, Angeletia Clarke (pictured above) from Clarke’s Kitchen participated on the programmes said.
“I just wanted to take this opportunity to let you know how inspired, encouraged, full of go get em beans I am after yesterday and upon reflection of the whole course. What an experience, to be in a room of such young enthusiast, future game changers and hopeful people. Thank you all at the trust and at the University. I can’t wait, watch this space” Angeletia Clarke – Clarkes Kitchen.
