Peter Jones Foundation

The Peter Jones Foundation was founded in 2005 by successful entrepreneur and Dragons` Den star, Peter Jones CBE.

The Foundation believes that all young people deserve a brighter future and aims to help them reach their potential through a range of pioneering educational activities and initiatives which champion and celebrate entrepreneurship, including the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy and Tycoon in Schools.

The Peter Jones Enterprise Academy ( is delivered by a network of FE Colleges around the country that offer BTECs in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship, so that 16-19 year olds end up with a qualification, as well as the skills and knowledge to set up their own business.

Tycoon in Schools ( is a schools competition run by the Foundation that gives start-up loans to schoolchildren as young as five years old, who then trade their very own business in schools to make a profit.

All of the Foundation's activities are supported by leading businesses and entrepreneurs around the country, who help make a difference to the lives of thousands of children and young people.

The Foundation`s aims are to:

EDUCATE - Achieve a transformational change in the quality and accessibility of enterprising and entrepreneurial skills, education and learning available in the UK.

ENCOURAGE - Excite all budding entrepreneurs across the nation, through a range of national campaigns, to follow their business dreams and encourage a culture of enterprise and entrepreneurship in Britain.

SUPPORT - Provide effective support to young people across the UK who are at various stages of their lives or in many different circumstances and in a variety of ways.
