Sponsor an orbiteer

The UK's leading training programme for 16-19 year old Orbiteers.

Orbit supports Orbiteers from schools across the UK to secure jobs in the industries of tomorrow, and launch businesses.

Our powerful accelerator training programme combines expert mentoring, exclusive workshops, online training content, and access to leading business figures and politicians.

With this support, we supercharge today’s youth to become tomorrow’s leaders.

Sponsors invest in the youth.

Orbiteers are required to secure sponsorship for their space on the programme. Each Orbiteer secures two sponsors, each vowing to pay £13.99 per month. A sponsorship agreement lasts for 36-months. We reinvest 100% of the sponsorship income back into the programme.

Sponsors are given a package of exclusive benefits worth over £1000.

Our sponsors are given access to exclusive events featuring some of the UK’s leading business & political figures, including billionaire entrepreneurs and famous athletes. Sponsors receive detailed monthly impact reports and tickets to the annual graduation.

£ 13
  • Detailed monthly impact reports on your Orbiteer's progress.
  • Tickets to our annual Orbiteer graduation event.
  • Tickets to our Life-Story events featuring billionaire entrepreneurs and leading politicians.
  • Photograph opportunities with our VIP visitors.
  • Exclusive offers from our partners.


During the 12 month programme, we’ll be supporting your Orbiteer to build the six key skills required for success. They will be given to support to launch their own business, or secure a job in an industry of tomorrow.

After completing the 12 months of intensive support on the accelerator, Orbiteers receive a further 24 months of ad-hoc support. This includes additional mentoring, workshops, trips to Silicon Valley, and much more.

Each sponsorship contract has a 36-month duration. When you apply to sponsor an Orbiteer, you are agreeing to continue the monthly payments for 36-months.

Orbit receives large sums of upfront finance from our partners, which is paid back through our monthly sponsorship income. This allows us to invest hundreds of thousands of pounds into the programme each year, whilst keeping it accessible to Orbiteers from all walks of life.

In the event that your Orbiteer leaves the programme within 6-months of their joining Orbit’s Accelerator, then the sponsorship agreement will be terminated and you will no longer have to contribute.

 Orbiteers are given a one month period upon joining to explore if the programme is the best fit for them. 

When an Orbiteer joins the programme, they are committing to a full 12 month period of intensive support in our accelerator followed by a 24 month period of additional support outside of the accelerator programme.

If an Orbiteer leaves the programme within the first six months of joining, we terminate the sponsorship agreement and you’ll no longer be required to pay.

Our sponsors are fundamental to our work and we strive to ensure that they are compensated for their contributions.

Each sponsor has access to our VIP Life-Story events (normally costing £120 per ticket). These events feature billionaire entrepreneurs, leading politicians, and famous athletes. 

Sponsors also have access to our graduation event, and receive monthly impact reports on the progress of their Orbiteer.

Each Orbiteer is required to secure three sponsors for their space on the programme. Typically, sponsors include parents, grandparents, and extended family members. Orbiteers are also encouraged to connect with local businesses and secure their sponsorship for participating in the programme.

In 2019, Orbit is expecting to work with 100 schools across the UK.  We’re also aiming to work with 1000 Orbiteers per month by the close of 2019.

Orbit is a Social Enterprise. This means that we don’t accept donations for our work and we have to build a self-sustaining model that combines income with purpose.

Every penny of our income is reinvested back into creating and maintaining the programme.

Each sponsorship agreement lasts for a period of 36-months, and sponsors pay £13.99 per month over the period.

It costs Orbit over £1000 to put one Orbiteer through the programme. This includes the costs of champions, workshops, room rental, guest speaker fees, the online platform, and other crucial expenses that are required to do our work.

Instead of paying a large sum upfront, Orbit spreads the payments over a period of time to keep the programme accessible to Orbiteers from all walks of life.

If your Orbiteer leaves the programme within the first six months after joining, there will be no need to continue making payments.

Help launch an Orbiteer's career to the stratosphere.
