Big Ideas Wales is Going on Tour!

Sep 30, 2022

The Young Person’s Guarantee (YPG) is the Welsh Government’s key commitment to everyone living in Wales under the age of 25, with support to gain a place in education, training or support to get into work or become self-employed. Part of YPG, the Big Ideas Wales service supports the next generation of young entrepreneurs in Wales and encourages young people 25 and under to develop enterprise skills whatever the career choice. To support potential young entrepreneurs, Big Ideas Wales offers a tailored programme of events, workshops and one-to-one advice to help young people build confidence in business, develop their ideas and to start a business.  The Young Person’s Start Up Grant is also available to enable young people not in education, employment or training to start their own business.
