Bridge 2 Business Edinburgh (Young Enterprise Scotland)
Bridge 2 Business offers a range of services, including 1-2-1 mentoring and employability programmes, to inspire, connect and support college students into, and through enterprise. The programme offers first-hand opportunities for students to experience enterprise and discover how it can help them to start up a business and develop their skills for life and work.
Students are supported to develop their connections and opportunities through engaging with our network of entrepreneurial role models or ‘Local Heroes’. These Local Heroes are usually members of the local business community and can offer relatable mentoring or support to college students who have an interest in setting up their own business.
Students are also encouraged to collaborate with key partners from the Scottish entrepreneurial eco-system which lets them create invaluable opportunities to further develop their business ideas and employability skills.
