“When you read about Gymshark you read about the huge success, what you don’t get to read about are the seven websites that I started before Gymshark that failed miserably, you don’t read about the times where it was incredibly stressful and difficult to try and get the brand to grow.”
– Ben Francis Founder and incoming CEO of Gymshark
What can we do to celebrate the extraordinary achievements of young people in the face of a global pandemic which has had a disproportionate impact on young people? Put on an event all about them of course.
Through the inspiring conversations of the UK’s leading young entrepreneur Ben Francis and esteemed financial journalist Steph McGovern we dove deep into the incredible impact Young Enterprise has on lives across the UK. The celebration has further fuelled our desire to do everything in our power to support young people with the best enterprise and financial education possible, in order to help them tackle the ever changing world of work. With our brilliant speakers and hundreds of virtual attendees, it generated ideas, inspiration and motivation for a bright post-Covid future.
