Orbit supports 16-19 year old school students to launch their own businesses.

We’ve sparked an entrepreneurial movement within schools across the United Kingdom. Orbit was founded in 2015 and supports high school students to launch, build, and grow their own businesses whilst continuing to study at school.

We’ve developed the first “accelerator” programme for 16-19 year old students, and our programme combines exclusive workshops, expert mentoring, and access to billionaire entrepreneurs and leading politicians.

With this support, we’ve seen seventeen year old “Orbiteers” build six figure businesses and develop the seven skills required for success.

Bringing the UK's leading entrepreneurs and politicians to our sessions.

Learn from billionaire entrepreneurs, famous athletes, leading politicians, and industry leaders at our Life-Story events.

Taking place around the UK, Orbit’s “Life-Story” events take you on the journey that our VIPs have taken to achieve success. You’ll learn from their words of wisdom, be inspired by their reflections, and have the chance to meet our VIPs in person.

Previous speakers include Jim McColl OBE, Lord Haughey OBE and Sir Tom Hunter. See our upcoming Life Story events by clicking on the button below.

Fully funded.

Orbit's accelerator programme is funded by the UK's best known most successful entrepreneurs and corporations. We'll cover the cost leaving you to focus on your business.

Leading the field.

We're proud as punch about our accelerator programme. We've worked with the UK's leading academics and entrepreneurs to build the most successful entrepreneurship training programme for teenage school students.

Tried and tested.

Orbit's accelerator programme has worked with over 120 schools and 500 Orbiteers. Our programme has proven to develop the seven skills required for success.
