Calling all budding entrepreneurs! A new partnership between Bob Rehill & Associates and Sixth Form College Farnborough is soon to be launched with the aim of supporting young people and equipping them with the tools to make it in business.
The Bob Rehill Entrepreneur Programme, spearheaded by experienced and professional entrepreneur Bob Rehill, is offering a programme of support and funding for up to three local entrepreneurial projects from students at Sixth Form College Farnborough.
For much of his career, Bob has held leadership roles across all disciplines within the business lifecycle including Sales & Marketing, Business Development, Operational Management, IT, Finance and HR. Now using that expertise, together with over 18 years of consultation experience on transformation projects and programmes, Bob is providing this fantastic opportunity to the next generation of students. He comments “This is a great opportunity for young, budding entrepreneurs, those that are either looking to continue to grow a current business, or to start a new one. My call out to entrepreneurs is to grab the opportunity and create that video, who knows where it might take you! I’m really enthusiastic about helping students at Sixth Form College Farnborough and look forward to hearing more about their exciting businesses.”
The successful businesses will be able to advantage of one-to-one coaching sessions and specialist advice with Bob for a minimum of four months; a cash grant of up to £10,000 across the three businesses; support with marketing, admin and back-office functions, as well as networking and additional contacts where applicable.
“This is a great opportunity for young, budding entrepreneurs, those that are either looking to continue to grow a current business or to start a new one. I’m really enthusiastic about helping students at Sixth Form College Farnborough and look forward to hearing more about their exciting businesses.”
In order to take advantage of this generous offer, students with a business idea must complete an application form and also submit a short video outlining their business idea and why they want to be part of the scheme by Wednesday 24th April. A ‘Dragon’s Den’ style pitching session will then follow for successful applicants on Thursday 16thMay, where Bob will make the final selection and award up to three businesses with the support and funding.
Christine Eustace, Director of Community Engagement at The Sixth Form College Farnborough comments “This is a truly innovative project as not only does it offer our budding entrepreneurs financial support, but also personal mentoring from Bob and his team, something which money simply can’t buy.”
