What is Big Ideas Wales?
Big Ideas Wales is here to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs in Wales and encourage young people under 25 to develop enterprise skills whatever the career choice.
The Youth Entrepreneurship Strategy (YES) aims to equip young people aged 5-25 with entrepreneurial skills and attitudes to raise their aspirations, so they can fulfil their potential whatever they choose to do.
Entrepreneurship is not something special that a few people are born with. Entrepreneurship is a way of thinking that can be nurtured.
A team of dedicated staff provide the coordination and preparation for role model visits in schools, colleges and universities.
The Welsh Government’s Youth Entrepreneurship Services provide a range of opportunities for young people to get involved in enterprise and get support to start a business.
- Youth Entrepreneurship Services in Primary and Secondary Schools
- Youth Entrepreneurship Services for 16-24 year olds
Entrepreneurs are best placed to inspire and encourage future entrepreneurs in Wales.
We’re looking for inspirational role models to be part of the network and reflect the diversity of business in Wales.
By becoming a ‘role model’, you can make a real difference to the lives of young people all across Wales.
