THE IDG 2018: CHARITY PARTNERS
The BizWorld foundation was originally set up in 1997 in Silicon Valley by venture capitalist Tim Draper who saw a need for inspiring entrepreneurship in children.
BizWorld UK provides fun, project-based programmes that promote financial responsibility, leadership and teamwork skills for 10-13 year old students. By teaching them these skills, children become 21st Century thinkers

The Prince’s Trust works hard to create brighter futures for young people aged 11 to 30, empowering them to get into jobs, education and training. Last year The Prince’s Trust helped over 20,000 young women achieve their potential.
