The Duke of York and Nominet Trust have announced that iDEA – a new inspiring Digital Enterprise Award scheme will re-open for applications in September 2015.
The aim of iDEA is to support young people (aged 14-25) to gain digital and entrepreneurial skills to set up and run their own business venture; with the chance to win up to £15,000 and mentor support.
The Digital Enterprise Award will facilitate the lean, bootstrapping style of entrepreneurship preferred by young people, enabling them to build digital prototypes and test the viability of their business idea with prospective customers. Over the next five years, the scheme wants to support more than one million young people to pursue their own ideas, develop their digital skills and get to grips with the reality of business.
