The Prince’s Trust Enterprise Programme

The Prince’s Trust is a youth charity that supports young people to get into jobs, education and training.

The Prince’s Trust Enterprise Programme provides free start-up support, training, mentoring and funding to help young people under 30 start their own business. The support is broken down into four stages:

Info session

Attendees will learn how The Prince’s Trust can support them, and invite those who want to develop their business idea to take part in a four-day workshop.


During the workshops, attendees will have the chance to speak to a business adviser and learn about a wide range of topics including business planning, marketing, sales, budgeting and tax.

Build your business

After the workshop, participants will benefit from mentoring to help them plan and test their business ideas. There is also the opportunity to apply for funding.


Before launching the business, participants will present their business plan to a group of experts. They will help ensure the idea is viable and sustainable.

The Prince’s Trust also provides a range of online resources and templates covering business planning, funding, marketing and more.
