Tameside MBC in the NW of England and the Municipality of Sundsvall, Mid Sweden, agreed the terms for the transfer of the licence to allow TMBC to run the first UK pilot of the Summer Entrepreneur programme in the summer of 2011.

With funding from the Local Innovation Award, achieved by Tameside in 2010, the pilot will allow 30 young people the chance of starting a business in the summer holidays with coaching from local business people. The Summer Entrepreneur programme has been a huge success in Sweden and the programme has already been successfully transferred to the region of Flevoland in the Netherlands.

Tameside MBC hopes to become the UK agent for the Summer Entrepreneur programme in the UK and will encourage other Councils and organisations to consider setting up the programme in their areas.
