Sponsor an Eastern Enterprise Hub Student

At the Eastern Enterprise Hub, we know that there is a pool of creative and talented young people living in East Anglia, who would reap the benefit of taking part in a tailored programme to help them to either develop entrepreneurial skills and set up a business, build confidence and get into employment or to return to education.

Our expert Learning Manager Kim Trotter has carefully designed such programmes, providing effective enterprise advice, business knowledge and support as well as working on confidence and communication skills.

Enterprise Academy

Enterprise Academy helps young people create their own opportunities not only in business, but in employment as well. Students who have been on our previous programmes, run in partnership with Suffolk New College and ONE, said they feel more confident when meeting customers or employers. They have a much better understanding of the workplace and the skills needed to progress in employment, or with their own business.

We are now looking to work with other educational establishments and organisations across the region to deliver our next Enterprise Academy programme. Our sponsorship package allows you to sponsor a student (aged between 16-18 years) to take part in the Enterprise Academy, where they will expand their understanding of business, develop skills employers are looking for and make highly valuable connections for the future.

Back to Your Future Programme

Supported by entrepreneurs and local women in business, the Back to Your Future Programme brings together a network of professional females that make up the current local influencers and decision-makers who help to bring through the next generation. We were thrilled to secure match-funding earlier on in the year, ensuring that the pilot programme, which started in March 2013 could begin. We are now looking to start a full programme, due to begin in November 2015 and we are now offering local businesses an exciting opportunity to support us with sponsorship.

The sponsorship package allows you to support a young woman to undertake the Back to Your Future Programme where she will develop her confidence, and communication, planning, entrepreneurial skills.

A sponsorship package of £500 (for either Enterprise Academy or the Back to Your Future Programme) includes:

  • Brand positioning/association with the Eastern Enterprise Hub; the most innovative enterprise support agency in the Eastern Region
  • Brand exposure to an established network in the business community and specifically to the network of entrepreneurs associated with these programmes
  • Recognition as a supporter of diversity and champion of the Eastern Enterprise Hub, and our support for young entrepreneurship and of women and mothers taking their place in the economic landscape
  • Sponsorship of a student place on either the Enterprise Academy and/or the Back to Your Future Programme - where possible that student would have a direct interest in your business area
