-- Adam Bradford (19) from Sheffield launched his company UnITe Computing one year ago alongside Dragon's Den survivor Levi Roots. Levi called his business 'inspirational' and has since mentored Adam, helping him to breathe fire and create future success for his peers in the process.
Last week the company celebrated its first birthday, where Adam launched a new campaign to inspire young people to set up and launch their own enterprises.
This summer Adam will be touring the country and the world speaking about his journey so far and how the city of Sheffield has been instrumental in creating his success. Adam said: 'Travelling isn't my passion, but spreading my message with as many enthusiastic young people as possible is vital. Lots of youngsters don't know where to start when they want to set up a company and I have first hand experience which I'd like to share.
The Peter Jones Enterprise Academy, mentors and initiatives in my hometown of Sheffield really kickstarted my entrepreneurial journey. I want to take that to the world!'
Adam has already spoken at a number of national conferences and will embark upon University talks in the US, a residential bootcamp in France and an enterprise visit in India in his bid to motivate other teenagers to set up their own companies.
His company portfolio has now expanded to provide access to over 1000 mentors, workspace facilities and business opportunities to young people with the support of UnLtd. You can find out more about Adam's work at www.entrepreneuradam.tv.
