I was an undergraduate when I started actively gathering information about running my own company. While at a start-up event I decided, ‘I can do this’ and have never looked back. Whilst at college I participated in a wide range of enterprise activities and met lots of inspirational role models. I also took part in the Go Wales work placement scheme and at 18 became an IT manager.
Realise that being young is an advantage not a barrier. Anyone can start a business; you just need confidence and belief in yourself. Don’t be afraid to seek advice and support and use any opportunities that come your way
