think enterpriseUnder 25s urged to tap into Think Enterprise to launch more businesses

Young entrepreneurs in the West Midlands will be the first in the UK to benefit from a new web platform aimed at making enterprise simple. - the brainchild of the Young People’s Enterprise Centre of Expertise (YPECOE) – has been launched to provide a specialist, single gateway for under-25s looking to develop an idea, start a new business or who are seeking help to grow an existing company.

It is expected to provide crucial advice, guidance and support to more than 10,000 individuals every year and will play a key role in the region’s recently announced 3% campaign, which will look to create 5,000 new entrepreneurs by 2012.

Jackie Brierton, Director of YPECOE, is excited at the impact the new website will have:

“We are delighted that the West Midlands is again leading the way when it comes to delivering tailored enterprise support to our young people and this will have a major impact on the vitality of the economy."

Scotland’s future economic growth is dependent on the growth and development of new businesses; particularly in light of increasing public sector cuts. Welcoming Think Enterprise as a very exciting new development, Blue Horizons Managing Director Jackie Waring comments:

“Jackie Brierton and her colleagues at YPECOE are to be congratulated on such an innovative and forward looking web platform. This is a really significant step forward in new thinking on stimulating enterprise amongst young people who themselves are the key to our future economic growth. We look forward to welcoming Think Enterprise to Scotland soon as it is exactly the kind of new development needed here.”
