Transforming Lives through Enterprise.

Our mission is simple: to change lives through enterprise. We want young people aged 18 and 30 to see entrepreneurship as a sustainable path towards a better future.

We do this by empowering them to fulfil their potential by providing affordable workspaces, skills training, mentorship, networking, funding and other support opportunities needed to start or grow a business.


We channel our resources into communities facing challenges to ensure all young people have an equal chance.

Launch It has catapulted me into a position and mindset that I was miles away from prior to the starting programme. This programme has given me the resources and the confidence to bring my passion of social enterprise to life. I am extremely grateful.
