Young people aged between 10 and 24 can join a new programme designed to help them kick-start their own businesses and get entrepreneurial advice.
The six week ‘enterprise bootcamp’ starts on Tuesday (January 20) and participants will receive free studio space, one-to-one mentoring and access to Bootstrap, in Ashwin Street, Dalston.
Bootstrap is home to more than 300 businesses including start-ups, media professionals and social enterprises which have volunteered their time and expertise for the scheme.
The programme is in partnership with housing association Peabody.
Sara Turnbull, Bootstrap CEO said: “Even with recent regeneration there is still high inequality and high youth unemployment in Hackney. Bootstrap and Peabody are working together to create a space and structure for local young people to connect with Hackneys buzzing new creative economy.
