Barclays mentoring and support for social enterprise
Inspiring youth, supporting social enterprise and fostering a culture of entrepreneurship.
Do you have a social enterprise, or a great idea that deserves to be heard? Are you young and talented and ready to realise this potential?
Barclays is offering five inspiring social enterprises access to an unprecedented package of business training and support, totally free. This includes a bespoke package of business tools, soft skills coaching and one-to-one mentoring from a senior executive from Barclays.
We are looking for young people under the age of 30 who either have an amazing idea for a social enterprise or who have been running one for under two years and who thinks they would benefit from the support package. We want aspiring game changers with innovative ideas and the potential to make a big impact.
To be in with a chance of winning this incredible prize, and to get your social enterprise off the ground, you’ll need to attend our intensive one-day social enterprise course and selection day on the 20th May. Alongside targeted training and advice, each attendee will have seven minutes to pitch their idea/business and eight minutes to take questions from the panel, who will then go on to choose the ultimate winners.
We’ll be selecting the top 60 applicants to attend this event, if you think your social enterprise has what it takes, let us know by applying for your place. Applications close on the 13th May 2013.
