On a mission to inspire the next generation to think bigger.
Founded in 2015, Orbit is one of the UK’s fastest growing Social Enterprises and currently has operations in Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Manchester.
Our primary work involves supporting teenagers, aged 16 – 18, to either launch businesses or to find a job, and support them through the process of doing so.
We were disgruntled by overly-corporate, stale educational programmes within schools and wanted to challenge the status quo.
In 2015, founder Kieran stood outside a factory for three hours, unannounced, to meet Sir Tom Hunter, and pitched Orbit to him in the middle of the car park.
Since then, Orbit has gained the backing of some of the UK’s biggest business and political figures. We’ve got a proven model, and are taking it UK wide.
As a Social Enterprise, we’re a fully self-sustaining business which doesn’t accept donations.
We strike a balance between profit, and purpose, and this guides every decision we make.
We were founded to have an impact on shaping the future of the next generation, and we’re living proof that where you’re going in life matters much more than where you’ve been.
We’ve got a solid team to power Orbit as we take our model around the UK.
Our Non-Exec Director, James Fleming, is a big believer in thinking big. The video interview on the right documents his rise from a working class Wishaw boy, to managing a 30,000 person remit in Dubai.
