Unemployed entrepreneurs are being offered a chance to kick-start their careers thanks an innovative new scheme.
If you are aged between 18 and 30, have been unemployed for six months and keen to start your own business you can apply for the Mini-Enterprise Business Opportunities Support Scheme (MEBOSS).
The scheme, run by The League of British Muslims (LBM), in conjunction with the Royal Bank of Scotland Inspiring Enterprise, will focus on aspiring businessmen and women in the Ilford South constituency.
Bashir Chaudhry, of LBM, the project’s leader, said: “With funding support from RBS Inspiring Enterprise, we will be able to release the latent entrepreneurial spirit of 50 long-term unemployed young people, and transform them in to successful business people running their own successful and sustainable enterprise.”
The MEBOSS project offers training in entrepreneurial skills, business principles, bookkeeping, and marketing and offers one-to-one mentoring. It includes a three-month opportunity to learn how to run a business by selling re-branded donated products from retail partners.
