Prince’s Trust - Youth Business Scotland

The Prince’s Trust Youth Business Scotland supports young people aged 18 to 30 years old to start-up and grow in business, by providing essential funding and professional mentoring support. PTYBS gives vital support to young people interested in entrepreneurship.

Business start-up support

The Prince’s Trust Youth Business Scotland programme gives practical advice on how to start up a business, how to write a business plan, introductory finance training as well as offering loans of up to £5,000 and grants of up to £1,000.

Youth Business Scotland works closely with partners across the Enterprise Network in Scotland and facilitates regular Elevator events for young people, offering them a chance to hear from business leaders and an opportunity to sharpen their networking skills.

On-going support

In addition to helping young people start-up in business, PTYBS assists entrepreneurs who have previously been supported by The Trust to grow their existing business.
