A search has been launched to find the businesses of the future by mentoring charity Brightside, who are on a mission to find and fund the businesses of the future.

On offer for the young entrepreneurs whose business plans make it through a review by the charity’s business experts is start-up finance of around £2,500 from Start-Up Loans, a government initiative, and one-to-one online mentoring from an experienced business person working in the same sector.

From app developers to antique sellers, every successful business begins with a good idea, but it takes a helping hand as well as hard cash to get it up and running. That’s just what Brightside is offering.
