Ages 15-18 •
Live Online OR In Person
The Young Entrepreneur Weekend 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 over 2 days. You can choose to attend the programme either in-person in London or ‘Live Online’.
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.
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.
Successful business leaders will coach you through live, interactive simulations, including:
Designing a business strategy to rapidly grow a company
Creating a marketing strategy to win the hearts of consumers
Coaching by experts on how to found, build and scale a high-growth business from scratch
Step-by-step guidance on what you can do to become a successful CEO, starting now
Q&A time with a panel of successful entrepreneurs from key areas such as manufacturing, technology and retail
Unlimited lifetime access to our depth of expertise. Students can contact us for further advice at any time and the most-relevant InvestIN executive will respond to your questions

As part of your booking, you will receive 12 months’ access to our state-of-the-art tech platform, AmbitionX. Here you will find all of your programme materials and complete post-programme assessments to gain coveted ‘experience points’ to demonstrate your levels of professional development.

If the in-person programme is cancelled because of Covid-19 then students will have two options: i) move to the next in-person date; ii) move to the ‘Live Online’ version of the programme you selected and be refunded the difference in price. (If you pay via credit because you postponed a previous booking then the credit note will be reissued to you in full). Any government guidance on Covid-related safeguarding (such as the wearing of masks and social distancing) will of course be adhered to. We have managed to successfully deliver in-person programmes during the Covid-19 pandemic, including during the summers of 2020 and 2021, with excellent feedback. We are therefore highly experienced in giving students a fantastic experience even with social distancing rules in place.
