Thomson Local launches nationwide 'Build a Business' scheme for schools

Thomson Local, the UK local search company has today announced its first ever “Build a Business” scheme for schools.

MOBO Awards founder and entrepreneur Kanya King will front the campaign which will see schoolchildren around the country setting up their own businesses to benefit their local communities.

The initiative is being launched as new research reveals that 81% of kids aspire to run their own business and, with the new season of The Apprentice about to get underway, Sir Alan Sugar tops the list as most admired businessman with 17% of votes polled. Sir Alan polled almost twice as many votes as his nearest rival, Bill Gates, while Virgin boss Richard Branson came a close third with 8% of the votes. 12% of respondents said that a family member was the businessman/woman they most admired.

Schools around the country are being invited to submit proposals for a business that will add value to their local community. Thomson Local will then shortlist 50 schools who will each receive a £100 bursary to help them bring their business to life for a hands-on enterprise experience.

Each school will have access to a local business ‘hero’ who will mentor and advise students on their business. In addition, Thomson Local will help each school build a website for their business and showcase the students’ work on a dedicated microsite.

Project ambassador and founder of the MOBOs, Kanya King commented:  “I’m delighted to be involved with Thomson Local in a project that encourages enterprise in young people. I launched my own business in 1996 and have never looked back. Not only am I doing something I love, I’m my own boss and can see firsthand what impact my business has on the people around me.

“I hope this initiative will inspire a new generation of entrepreneurs to get out there, set up a thriving local business and turn their passion into profit.”

Gary Brown, product and marketing Director from Thomson Local added:  “Thomson Local is proud to sit at the heart of the local community and to help businesses thrive and succeed. We hope that the Build a Business scheme will help encourage the new local businesses of the future.”
