What does this involve?

This is a unique opportunity for young people in Perth and Kinross to learn how to start a business and become self-employed. The year-long SEED programme (​​Self-Employment + Entrepreneurial Development) is run by GrowBiz and is fully funded - to take part you need to commit to up to 3 hours per week. 

The programme includes:

  • specially designed online learning sessions
  • mentor training
  • networking sessions with inspiring speakers
  • monthly group meetings
  • work experience/rural business placements and one-to-one support
  • a £1,000 grant

This part time programme will mostly take place online and is designed to work around other education, employment or business commitments.

Am I eligible?

To take part you must be:

  • living in Perth and Kinross
  • aged 18-25 years old
  • able to commit time over the next 12 months

What does this cost?

This is a free programme.

Who is this for?

The programme is suitable for anyone who has a business they would like to grow, an idea they would like to get off the ground or anyone who would like to explore what self-employment could mean for them.

How long does this take?

The programme will run until late 2022.
