EMPOWERING YOUNG PEOPLE TO TAKE OFF
We are Launch It, a group of UK youth enterprise charities dedicated to supporting young creatives, hustlers & innovators wanting to start or grow a business.
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.

Starting a business is undeniably challenging. By offering two years of very low-cost space at the heart of the most deprived communities plus a full time Enterprise Manager, I am proud that Launch It can provide stability for local entrepreneurs in the critical early years of their business.
