Ignite Peterborough was a project for young entrepreneurs aged 16-30 in Peterborough and the surrounding area. Delivered by Opportunity Peterborough with support from Peterborough Regional College, it supported start-up businesses and helped them to grow by offering office space, mentoring, bespoke support and plenty of networking opportunities.
A student hub was based at Peterborough Regional College and worked with student start-up businesses as well as providing opportunities and enterprising activities designed for young people.
Local businesses joined a network of mentors to support the young people on the Ignite Peterborough programme. Examples include offering one-to-one financial mentoring with our partner organisations such as Rawlinsons, or free legal surgeries with Buckles Solicitors LLP.
