Become the best you can be.

Orbit's accelerator programme is designed to push you beyond your comfort zone, and build the seven skills you'll need to achieve massive success.

Prepare for lift-off.

Join a family of 40 Orbiteers in your region, and 400 Orbiteers across the UK. 

Orbiteers come from all walks of life, but are joined with a shared desire to build an incredible future for themselves and we equip them with the skills, knowledge, and mindset required to achieve success.

With the support of Orbit, there’s no limit to what you can achieve.

Join the family.

Orbit’s culture is eccentric, all-consuming, and has been described as a “Wolf of Wall Street” environment (without the fraud, and other illegal activities. Obviously…)

This isn’t a game. You’ll be running real businesses and earning real money. However, with expert support, you can transform your bright ideas into reality and achieve staggering levels of success in the process.

We’ve seen Orbiteers turn bright ideas into businesses earning over £100,000, and other Orbiteers have entered careers in fields including artificial intelligence and digital marketing.

A step by step guide to success.

Orbit’s Programme was built with the assistance of billionaire entrepreneurs and industry leaders. After surveying some of the UK’s wealthiest business leaders we identified seven “keys” to success that if taken and applied, can lift anyone to the upper echelons of achievement.

With our support, you can build a business whilst you’re still at school.

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs

You’ll be given a video introduction to the programme upon being accepted and an information guide outlining session dates and the location of our sessions. You’ll be given a warm welcome and join 40 new and existing Orbiteers in our Gaff where the programme will be explained to you.

There’s no need to come with a business idea (although you’re welcome to do so). Our champions are trained to help you identify a viable business idea.

After completing the four months of intensive support on the accelerator programme, Orbiteers receive a further 24 months of ad-hoc support which they can access if required. This includes additional mentoring, workshops, VIP Life-Story events and online courses.

If you’re business fails, you’ll be able to wind up shop by contacting the HMRC and stating that you are no longer self-employed. We ensure that Orbiteers don’t get into debt, and any financial losses are kept to a minimum.

Running a business and starting your career at a young age gives you enormous credibility when speaking with employers, universities, or banks in the future. Some Orbiteers have secured places at prestigious Universities including Harvard University, and most Orbiteers secure well paid jobs/profitable businesses after leaving the programme. You’ll build networks with leading business figures who can present you with unique opportunities. You’ll also have two references and a five year career plan.

We understand that new opportunities can be daunting at first. Our team are warm and approachable and your fellow Orbiteers will welcome you with open arms. The programme gaffer for the region will be able to provide additional support to help you settle into the programme.

Your earnings will depend upon the level of effort you put into the programme, the career path you choose, and the profitability of the business that you own. We aim to have Orbiteers earning over £10,000 through their ventures, and some Orbiteers have earned over £100,000.
