I turned down my university offer in favour of the Academy and have now secured funding for my business.
The Academy helped me realise that there is an alternative to university.
I had this great idea for a luxury pet brand and the Academy gave me the knowledge I needed to get the business up and running.
It felt like an entirely new chapter of my life and, just as I expected, the course was amazing.
Pitching to Peter Jones in person was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and it was amazing to be chosen as the National Entrepreneur of the Year 2015.
I decided to go ahead and apply for the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy course, which turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made.
For anyone interested in entrepreneurship, I would highly recommend the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy.
Where there’s a will there’s a way.
Entrepreneurship is fun!
I am thrilled to be the 2014 National Entrepreneur of the Year winner.
My dad always told me, 'If you find a job that you love you will never work another day in your life', and I believe that through and through.
The Academy allowed me to take control of my life and gave me the encouragement and ambition to take the path that makes me who I am today.
I'm determined to never stop learning and the Level 5 Apprenticeship is the perfect next step to allow me to do this after graduating from the Academy.
The Peter Jones enterprise academy gave me the skills and guidance needed to start my own business. At 20 I now run a successful recruitment company.
My childhood dream was to set up my own business. And now I'm an entrepreneur.
I worked as hard as I possibly could at the Academy and was always fascinated by and enthusiastic about every activity on the course.
I remember thinking I liked the idea of being taught by people who’d built up successful businesses themselves.
I could hardly wait to meet fellow budding entrepreneurs, discuss business ideas and create my own successful company.
I’m really on the way to setting up my own business now. If you’re thinking about studying business then the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy is perfect.
I am astounded by how much I have been taught during this short period of time.
I learned to juggle when I was seven years old and now run a circus performing business.
