Internship Overview

The Young Entrepreneur Programme gives students aged 15-18 an immersive experience of life as a successful entrepreneur. You will be coached through a series of interactive simulations, seminars, case studies and Q&A sessions by a group of passionate leaders from the world of business.

You will gain both the hard business skills you need to succeed: how to build, market and finance a global brand, AND the soft skills that make the difference: negotiation, leadership and motivation. 

The programme takes place over two days – Saturday dedicated to building a billion-dollar business and Sunday to gaining the skills of a top CEO. You can choose to attend either one or both days.

Attendance will give you a competitive edge in the race for the best universities and jobs and a 'super-curricular' experience to add to your UCAS application.
