“Jobless youth is one of the most important challenges facing society today and job prospects for the 853,000 young people in the UK still out of work are deteriorating rapidly. The situation is alarming both for the country and the young people themselves and while self employment is proven to be a low-risk option for young people to create their ‘own jobs’, there is very little evidence of start up support for young people. Unemployed youth are pushed towards a declining jobs market and at Young Britain we are calling for the Government to intensify efforts to help these young people make their own jobs and become their own boss”
You are invited to meet new and rising talent from Telford and Shropshire, young people who have done just that. Got to grips with starting a business and not only made their own jobs but made opportunities for others. Hear about the Start Up Britain business boom and the associated falls in unemployment as the numbers of self employed increase.
Monday 30th June
A celebration of youth entrepreneurship in Telford & Shropshire
THE YOUNG BRIT AWARDS on Monday 30th June at Hadley Park House celebrates the 100 businesses helped to start and grow over 18 months through the YOUNG BRITAIN programme. Ranging from a business network for 'mums', on and off line retailers and crafts and vintage shops through to clothing brands, sports and fitness ventures, a property lettings company and even a lumberjack.
As part of THE YOUNG BRITAIN scheme to back enterprise and small businesses operated by the under 30's, fledgling entrepreneurs are offered expert mentoring, access to the Government backed Start Up Loans and sales, marketing and business planning workshops.
The Minister for Employment Esther McVey says that the continuing success of Great Britain is built on the ingenuity of such small businesses and this new generation of entrepreneurs have not only made their own jobs but they will go on to create the jobs of tomorrow.
THE YOUNG BRIT AWARDS celebrates the successes of a hundred local start ups, ten awards have been created to mark the ten principles so necessary to the new young businesses and a new Entrepreneur Medal created in memory of John Clayton who steered the Young Britain programme until his untimely death in April this year.

BUSINESS BY DESIGN
We provide business support services that include StartUp Boot Camps, entrepreneur events, office administrative products and co working services.
We fervently believe that entrepreneurs can be taught and we also believe that support for lone entrepreneurs is vital in helping businesses to grow.
You can 'buy in' the skills and services you need to expand and increase sales.
The skills to start a business or become self-employed are easily acquired and can be life-changing. Not only do local self employed people and entrepreneurs stay local and buy local, they drive the economy and make local areas better places to live and work.
We are the main provider of start-up & business support in the area (providing 35+ training places a month) and are proud to be working with Enterprise Nation as the regional business champion, managing events, networks and member support. We also work with Transmit Start Ups helping with applications by individuals seeking business start up finance through the government funded Start Up Loans Company.
We provide co working local networks for like-minded business people and are priveleged to work with inspiring and highly ambitious business owners.
