  • The Prince’s Trust has helped more than 80,000 young people across the UK launch new businesses since it kicked off its enterprise programme in 1983. Now the Trust is inviting young entrepreneurs in Northern Ireland to follow a similar path to business success, with new enterprise courses due to take place in Belfast, Portadown, Derry and Dungannon in June.

    The Prince’s Trust’s Enterprise programme is aimed at young people aged between 18 and 30 who are unemployed (or working less than 16 hours a week) and who have an idea for a new business but questions about how to launch it.

    The programme begins with with a free information session, where budding entrepreneurs can gain a better understanding of how the Enterprise course will help them develop and launch their new business.

    Assuming they feel a career in entrepreneurship is right for them, the course itself will then take the form of a four-day interactive workshop, where participants will be offered guidance and coaching on how to launch their new venture, in addition to support with writing a business plan and grants of up to £250 to test out different marketing strategies.

    After the course is completed participants will be able to apply for a startup loan of up to £5,000 to help get their new venture off the ground, and will also be assigned a business mentor for two years to help them overcome any obstacles or hurdles that may arise.

    To find out more about the upcoming Enterprise courses in Northern Ireland, or to apply for a place, budding entrepreneurs can complete the online form and choose the ‘Enterprise’ option.
