More than half of young people in the UK aged 16 to 24 want to start their own business.
To help them get their ideas off the ground, the council has launched an annual Westminster Enterprise Week to connect young people in Westminster to the world-class enterprise opportunities on their doorstep.

Westminster Enterprise Week is an official partner of Global Entrepreneurship Week, the world’s largest entrepreneurship campaign.
The second Westminster Enterprise Week took place on 14 to 20 November 2016.
Over 2,800 students from Westminster's schools and colleges participated in a packed programme of events, designed to inspire and promote enterprise in the heart of London.
Among the highlights were talks from successful entrepreneurs (including Tim Campbell and Margaret Mountford, known from the BBC's The Apprentice), tours of Westminster’s enterprise spaces, business pitch competitions, and a wide range of hands-on >workshops.
