Enterprise Nation and Launch It have partnered to deliver the Next Gen, a nine-month programme supporting 100 young entrepreneurs based in London.  

All participants have progressed on their own individual journeys to start and grow their very own businesses.

Provided with one-to-one support from business advisers, weekly bootcamps and free access to a variety of content on the Next Gen Hub, our entrepreneurs are on their way to starting incredible businesses. 

Six months on, 25 of them have the opportunity to showcase their brands to the public in a pop-up shop on Oxford Street. The pop-up shop will rotate with new sellers every Monday and Thursday.  

Visit the pop-up shop at Sook, 58 Oxford Street, London, W1D 1BH, for the whole month of June, starting on Monday 6.
