University supports young entrepreneurs
The University of Bradford is encouraging young entrepreneurs to follow their dreams through a new initiative.
The ‘Amaze Yourself’ project is being run by the University and offers 18-24 year olds the chance to take part in a four day enterprise course where they will learn how to turn their business dreams into a reality. The course will help participants build their confidence, learn teamwork skills and develop practical tools to set-up and run a successful business.
The opportunity is open to any 18-24 year old in the region, with no previous experience or qualifications required and includes visits to local businesses and talks from people in the community who have set up their own business.
Participants will work in teams to put forward a business idea, with the winning team receiving a day trip to one of the UKs largest cities to enjoy a day celebrating and experiencing what business is like in another city.
Mark Garratt, Director of External Affairs, University of Bradford said “This is a great chance for participants to boost their CV, build their confidence and gain valuable new skills. The course is completely free and gives young people the tools to create and run a successful business.
“This is an incredible opportunity for the young people of Bradford and we are thrilled to be offering this as part of our community and civic engagement activities.”
