'Campaign in a Box' is a bank of resources to help stakeholders to promote Big Ideas Wales to young people in a consistent and hopefully engaging way!

It includes literature, images, and copy for stakeholders to use in their own communications to attract more young people to think about starting a business. Everything is provided in Welsh and English.
