Council to support young entrepreneurs

Gravesham Council has launched a new programme to help nurture the borough’s young entrepreneurs.

The Interface Experience is looking for budding entrepreneurs aged 16-24 who believe they have the skills to make it in the world of business.

Cabinet member for tourism and young people, Cllr Jordan Meade, explained what the youth project is all about.

He said: "The Interface Experience has been thought up by our apprentices.

“When our new market hall opens later this year we want to be able to give young people a chance to sell their things in there too.

“The idea being that if we get enough interest then once a month we can have a youth market."

Eight of Gravesham Borough Council's apprentices have been involved in the project so far and are doing various things to see what interest there is.

Meade added: "We are pleased with the expressions of interest that we have received to date from young people, but we welcome more. 

“We really want to support our young people in the borough and we feel that a youth market is one way we can do this.

“This has never been done before in Gravesham so we're really keen to get the word out and inspire our young entrepreneurs."

If this sounds like something you'd like to get involved with, or you know someone who might be interested then get them to contact the council by emailing interface@gravesham.gov.uk
