This project has now finished.
Lifeline was a project training and supporting 16 to 25 year olds who wanted to set up their own online business.
Lifeline was for people who had a great business idea and just needed the skills and support to make it happen. It was for ebay traders, budding entrepreneurs, and those just wanting to test the waters.
Online businesses are the fastest growing type of business and it’s easy to see why – they’re quick to set up and have low start-up costs. In fact, we gave people the skills to be an online entrepreneur in under six months. We provided:
a knowledge-packed course. The ABCs of setting up an online business
mentoring and confidence-building support
access to web-designers
