Since then she has worked non stop, setting up many business ventures including: schoolspeakers.co.uk and girlsoutloud.org.uk.
Claire Young is passionate about promoting entrepreneurship and enterprise, to our younger generation and founded TeenBiz; the UK’s first business start up scheme for under 18’s. Claire works ‘hands on’ in schools (primary to university age), and across multiple government organisations; helping students to raise aspirations, take off the blinkers and think big!
She supports the National Apprenticeship Service, by heading up their Young Ambassador Network and works in partnership with the Peter Jones Foundation; supporting Tenner Tycoon and Global Entrepreneurship Week.
Recently she met with the Prime Minister, for round table talks and has been invited to join the House of Lords Youth Unemployment task force.
