The YES programme (www.lothianyes.com) supports young people in gaining experience by setting up and running their own companies over the course of a year. The offers of support from business leaders in the community is what keeps the spirit of the programme alive, and it’s all done on their own time at no cost.
Sarah Ronald, MD of Bunnyfoot Edinburgh, knows exactly the pressures of starting up her own business. At the age of 26 she had set up Bunnyfoot Edinburgh, as part of the Bunnyfoot group. A self-confessed workaholic, Sarah loves to share her enthusiasm for business and support these kids as they make their first tentative steps into the world of business.
