Alex Hughes is the founder of Inspire 2 Ignite and is a social entrepreneur, driven by his belief in entrepreneurship being the ultimate form of creativity. Alex is a self-confessed project ‘firestarter’, problem-solver, side-hustler and highly motivated agent for change. Becoming a father at the age of 14 was the catalyst behind his commitment to removing the barriers for young people. This has led Alex to build and manage several businesses, all focusing on the power that clusters of entrepreneurs can play in economic and social development. Inspire 2 Ignite is Alex’s way of giving young people, who – like himself – may have found themselves in unusual or challenging situations, the chance to be their very best selves, taking back control of their lives, and creating a future of endless possibilities.
