If so I have a fantastic opportunity to share with you!

We at The 4WD Foundation are working with Livity and Google on the Google Enterprise Apprenticeships (#GEA) pilot programme.

If you are or know of any 18-24 year olds ex-offenders who would like to become a successful entrepreneur please do e-mail me with their contact details or better still get them to email me at ASAP.

Interested individuals will need to attend a meeting this/next week in Brixton to discuss their business idea(s) and their suitability for the programme.

The attendees have the opportunity to attend an amazing action-packed 3 week full time 10am-5pm (very intense!) business planning course from Monday 26th July until Friday 13th August and will need to be able to travel to Victoria (Google HQ) / Aldgate East (Live East)/ Brixton (Livity HQ) over the 3 week period (travel / lunch expenses are covered).

So if you know of anyone who would be interested in this brilliant opportunity please email me at or even better get them to e-mail me direct!

Thanks a lot guys


PS – Please forward this info onto anyone who might know a potential attendee!
