The high rate of unemployment, following the recession in the early 1980s, was the key driver for Business LaunchPad’s establishment. Twenty four years later, our services are as much in demand as ever and our mission remains the same:
To offer practical, complete and personalised business guidance and support to young entrepreneurs, aged 16-30, who want to set up and run their own enterprise.
Since our launch, Business LaunchPad formerly known as (Wandsworth Youth Enterprise Centre) WYEC have supported thousands of young people to set-up and run hundreds businesses. Our unique, holistic support model has also led to impressive survival rates for our young people’s businesses, with 85% still trading after two years, unprecedented success levels which far outstrip the national average.
Originally founded as the Wandsworth Youth Enterprise Centre (WYEC), our work gradually grew and expanded beyond Wandsworth and the surrounding Boroughs. We found ourselves working with young people and organisations throughout London and, in June 2012, re-launched with a new name of Business LaunchPad, to better reflect the scope of our work.
