Young entrepreneurs celebrate the enterprising spirit
At a boat party held in London this weekend there was no shortage of positivity, despite a recession and rising student fees
Young entrepreneur Adam Bradford is no stranger to the entrepreneurial mindset as he began his first business at the tender age of 14. Since then his work has led to him picking up Dragon's Den fame's Levi Roots as a mentor and becoming a National Ambassador for Peter Jones CBE.
His current business, IT consultancy UnITe Computing has worked with clients such as Google and the University of Australia and Adam's story has recently featured in Lorraine Allman's book 'Enterprising Child' available in bookstores worldwide, which launched earlier this month.
Adam held the company's Christmas celebration this weekend as a luxury boat party on the River Thames after addressing government and making the case for promoting all that is positive about youth to senior officials including Baroness Jones earlier in the week. He said: 'Currently I work with Live UnLtd supporting young social entrepreneurs and have taken up this position furthering my wish to spread the message and potential of enterprise amongst young people. My journey was born out of adversity and tonight really went to prove that there are hard-working, enthusiastic young people working hard to create their own futures. I want to thank all who made an effort to attend who are testimonies for the kind of spirit this country needs.'
