The Peter Jones Foundation (PJF) started Igniting Enterprise four years ago as part of their efforts to make education as practical and relevant as possible.
The conversations are entrepreneurs from all corners of industry that can portray the brilliant diversity we have in our start-up ecosystem and the wonderful personal stories of overcoming problems and personal circumstances.
This year, we are proud to be working with Pearson to deliver 12 episodes released throughout the academic year, and to provide teachers with Worksheets containing snippets of our conversations mapped to the curriculums at Level 2 and Level 3, that can be played in classrooms. The host is Kumar Hindocha – PJF’s Head of Partnerships – and you can watch examples from previous years on PJF’s YouTube channel.
