London’s Leading Youth Enterprise Charity – proudly supported by the valued community of tenants at Trident Business Centre.

Business Launchpad is a self-funding enterprise charity for young people; the profit made from letting commercial space at Trident Business Centre is channelled directly back into the charity, providing support to our young entrepreneurs and enabling us to carry on helping young business men and women to pursue their dreams.

Our award-winning programme of holistic business support and counselling for aspiring entrepreneurs aged 16 to 30 has been helping young people set themselves up as successful business men and women since 1988.

How do we do it?

Our completely free two-year support programme offers:

  • One to one business counselling sessions
  • Workshops and training seminars on finance, social media and other core business skills
  • Networking Events
  • Opportunities for exposure for your business
  • The ability to connect with like-minded young entrepreneurs and establish a wider support network

Making History

Since 1988, Business Launchpad has helped over young people to set-up and run their own businesses. All of our business and counselling support is offered completely free.

Our London-wide, free support programme was first established in 1988, and in 2013, Business Launchpad was proud to receive both the Wandsworth Business of the Year award, and the Commitment to the Community award. It was a great achievement for the charity, and a wonderful recognition of our work.
