We are passionate about nurturing ambition, promoting entrepreneurship and maximising potential in young people irrespective of background. That's why we have created 'A Fairer Foundation', focused on empowering young people and helping them develop essential skills for their future. We believe that by putting entrepreneurship onto the school curriculum it will help the next generation develop confidence and resilience to engage in future workplaces or indeed grow their own business. We recognise that encouraging entrepreneurship is fundamental to the future growth of the UK's economy.
Some of the partners we work with today are:
