An 18-year-old budding entrepreneur from the Moorlands is receiving a leg-up in the world of business thanks to an enterprise programme on offer from The Prince’s Trust.
After signing up to The Trust’s Enterprise programme, Ethan Lemon from Biddulph has been meeting regularly with one of the youth charity’s volunteer business mentors, chartered accountant Jed Eatough, co-director of Growth4Businesses Ltd Group, which has four offices including LSGK Accountants in Leek.
Ethan spent much of 2017 printing his own graffiti style t-shirts and selling them online through his business, Original Criminal Clothing. It was a friend who recommended the Prince’s Trust Enterprise scheme to Ethan and he enrolled in January 2018. The programme equips young people with the training, tools and mentoring support needed to start their own business.
