The Clare Foundation was able to support the Peter Jones Foundation with a grant to help young people in Buckinghamshire develop enterprise skills and an entrepreneurial mindset over the 2021/2022 academic year. This was with a focus on driving participation from Bucks schools in the Peter Jones Foundation Tycoon Enterprise Competition. Mike Clare joined Peter Jones to meet students at Wycombe Abbey School to find out more about some of the projects. Read the full report.

Mike Clare, Founder & Chairman of The Clare Foundation:

I have known Peter for many years and share the entrepreneurial spirit so was delighted that through that shared vision, we could provide a grant for young people in Buckinghamshire to develop their skills, knowledge and become young entrepreneurs. I was also happy to have met students from Wycombe Abbey School at a recent event and hear all about their projects.

Bill Muirhead, CEO of Peter Jones Foundation:

The Peter Jones Foundation is incredibly grateful to have had the support of The Clare Foundation this year. The partnership has allowed us to reach more young people across Buckinghamshire than ever before, inspiring them to set up and run small businesses in school and develop vital enterprise skills. We believe that collaborations like this are more vital than ever as more and more young people are showing an interest in setting up side hustles, pursuing portfolio careers and developing an entrepreneurial mindset.

Martin Gallagher, CEO of The Clare Foundation:

It was super to have attended the Peter Jones Foundation Tycoon Final & Awards Ceremony (2022) at the Tobacco Docks in London recently. It was a wonderful day of celebrating the fantastic beneficiaries that came from all across the UK. From the thriving Tycoon Marketplace, these future entrepreneurs were able to display their incredible achievements in running their first businesses, and the ceremony allowed us to applaud and cheer these young Peter Jones Enterprise Academy Graduates.
