Entrepreneur launches Teen Republic campaign to get Teens into Business

This month sees successful British entrepreneur , Jordan Kensington launch a project to empower, engage and get teenagers into business. Teen Republic which is aimed at 15-18 year olds who are keen on getting into entrepreneurship. The 3 week weekend workshop will take place at Kensington’s Kings Cross offices and successful candidates with the best business plans will recieve funding, mentorship and marketing across all Kensington’s businesses. “As someone who started a business at age 18, i completely understand the power of mentorship, guidance and support needed for young people especially ones who come from typically poorer neighbourhoods or ethnic minority communities. Teen Republic aims to build a community of teen entrepreneurs who will change the landscape of entrepreneurship in the UK and worldwide. Our Teenagers are the future and they must be supported by us”.

What’s involved in Teen Republic?

From training and mentoring support to funding and resources, Teen Republic aims to help young teenagers become the best entrepreneur they can be. The free Teen Republic programme is broken down into three stages and takes place in the weekend.
