Milton Keynes launch event
Bridging the gap between industry and activated young talent.
Since our inception, we KNEW this day would come. How could it not!? Milton Keynes is so jam packed with innovation and forward thinking organisations which align with our vision. BUT, it’s still hard for industry to find and engage with 16-24 year olds with the right mindset and talents.
We have a proven track record of being THE experts in bridging the gap between businesses and local talent and we’re poised to start the process in MK.
What to expect?
Through our “Curious About MK” programme in Milton Keynes, we’re offering a solution to the challenge of finding talented 16-24 year olds, providing employers with an unfair advantage in the market through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
We’re launching our programme of entrepreneurial events and experiences on 12th September in collaboration with MK:U and Incubation Nation CIC. The launch event will explore the future of technology and construction in Milton Keynes and how programme partners can help attract more young, local talent to these industries.
Led by young people
Sam Squire, Lead Ignition Coach (and the future CEO of Inspire 2 Ignite CIC) will lead the launch event, alongside talented 16-24 year olds who have already been activated by Inspire 2 Ignite CIC. Sam (24) says; “As the real experts, these young people will share their powerful stories, their unique perspectives on entrepreneurship and insight into how industry can engage with them. It’s vital that young people have their voices heard. We are giving them the platform; the young people are making incredible things happen for themselves.”
The MK:U Innovation Hub will play host to this launch event; welcoming Milton Keynes’ visionary leaders, industry pioneers, and forward-thinking individuals who are open to discussing the challenges of engaging, inspiring and activating economically inactive young adults in the city.
