New Young Founders

51 people under age 25 start their first business in the UK every day.  That’s one every half hour.1


Bachelor's degree only

53% of founders have only a Bachelor’s degree.
83% have nothing beyond a Master’s.2


Any subject is fine.

69% of founders do not study Business, Accounting, Finance or Economics.2

Everybody starts somewhere.  We’re looking for people who want the most out of life.  People who won’t settle.  People who will take their future into their own hands, and gladly shoulder its responsibility.

If you’re drawn to it, you’ll know.  It’s the allure of a life lived on your terms, doing what you love, and making a statement to the world that just has huge potential upside.

We can help.We'll give you everything we can.

Oxford Entrepreneurs has three teams working to help you:

  1. Inspiration: Outreach to the University and local community, proselytizing entrepreneurship and showing people what’s possible.  We host events with incredible speakers, including some of our alumni.  Our social events spread the buzz around campus. Practical Events like our Hackathon give you a taste of that startup feeling.
  2. Education:  Regular series on general and specific aspects of entrepreneurship, in the forms of workshops, masterminds, and lecture series.  Free to attend, and taught by very qualified speakers in a personal environment at the Saïd Business School.
  3. Support: Direct mentoring of student founders by experienced entrepreneurs.   A social group specifically for active entrepreneurs, whom you can befriend and ask for advice if you need it.
