Yesterday I had a meeting with Jessica Elliot, founder of Dancing After School Ltd and winner of London Metropolitan University Business Plan competition.
Despite the volume of negative coverage that young people get there are plenty of clever, passionate, hard working young Londoners setting up businesses and helping London out of the current economic troubles.
I have no doubt that Jessica will do well as she has clearly thought through her launch and expansion plans. I also had a meeting with Apprentice winner and founder of the Bright Ideas Trust, Tim Campbell about supporting young entrepreneurs.
All in all a very uplifting afternoon.
