Students from Pearson College London, a UK Higher Education Institution, will be connected with young entrepreneurs from around the world following the agreement of an innovative new partnership with AdamStart.
AdamStart, the leading young entrepreneurship initiative delivered by The Adam Bradford Agency, will provide the College’s students with access onto a unique digital networking platform, linking them with a global network of ambitious young innovators. They will also provide a range of enterprise support to Pearson College London’s ecosystem of learners, academics, and SMEs.
The partnership marks the latest evolution in the long standing relationship between the two organisations, who’ve collaborated over several years to deliver entrepreneurial opportunities, both to the College’s students and other young people in the UK and beyond.
The on-boarding process will commence at the end of the current academic year, with the ambition of growing the platform to more than 4,000 members by July 2022.
Adam Bradford Agency founder and managing director Adam Bradford said: “The AdamStart platform has been designed by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs and is focused on connecting ambitious young entrepreneurs from around the world to the UK’s brightest, emerging business minds.
“The platform is built around education, peer learning and peer mentoring, and allows members to create their own networking bubbles to incubate and develop their ideas.“The ultimate ambition behind the project is to encourage and empower entrepreneurs to develop strong social enterprise initiatives, as part of The Adam Bradford’s broader remit of showcasing and driving business that makes a positive change to our world.”
Will Holt, Dean of Pearson Business School, said: “We’re proud to be linking up with AdamStart to deliver this project, and in doing so creating new opportunities for our students, alumni and staff, particularly in social entrepreneurship. This partnership aligns closely with our work-integrated learning focus at Pearson College London, and will strengthen our drive to bring the workplace and education closer together.
“This is the first partnership of its kind for Pearson College London, and unique in higher education, so it is no exaggeration to say that we’re truly excited by the potential of the project.”
