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.
