FOCUS: Inspire learners to reach for their goals and aim higher by introducing them to the concept of entrepreneurship and see how their ideas can become a reality

A group of 13 learners from YMCA came along to the NatWest Entrepreneurial Spark Hub in Leeds to find out more about the businesses that had set up there and were taking their ideas from concept to success.

After a tour of the Hub students heard from one of the young entrepreneurs, 19 year old Alex from Good Sense Training, about how he has built his business and the support he has received through the Hub.

The learners then took part in a team activity to practice their elevator pitch for an idea or product before practicing their presentation to the group and receiving feedback from RBS volunteers.
