2019 Baldwins Kick Start Award

Tuesday, 12 February 2019

2019 Baldwins Kick Start Award Offers £20,000 to Young Entrepreneurs in Great Britain.

This annual award programme supports young entrepreneurs in Great Britain who have enterprising ideas.

Baldwins Kick Start is an annual award programme for young entrepreneurs who have a good idea and would like to start their own business. The programme was established by Baldwins Accountants to find and develop the ‘Youth Entrepreneurs’ of the future.

Baldwins hopes to reach those young people who have talent, drive, ambition and ideas but who lack access to the necessary funding and business support needed to start up in enterprise.

The programme has a total budget of £300,000, running over ten years. Each year, the winner of the award will be given a grant of £10,000 coupled with £10,000 worth of mentoring and accountancy advice. Two runners-up will be presented with £5,000 worth of accountancy advice and mentoring.

The scheme is open to young people in Great Britain who are aged between 18 and 25 who either have an idea and a business plan but are yet to start trading, or a newly founded start-up business where trading commenced on or after 31 August 2018.

David Baldwin, Board Director at Baldwins, said:

"This is a really exciting opportunity for young people who have just started a business or looking to turn their idea into a reality […]

"The uncertainty originating from Brexit provides a challenging environment for existing businesses, let alone those just starting out on their entrepreneurial journey, so providing young business people with the right guidance is important, now more than ever."

Applications for the current round close on 31 August 2019.
