  2. 2. Emerge Leadership UK CIC Teenpreneur Event Review One of our most exciting programmes that we deliver each year is the Teenpreneur Challenge. Inspired by a programme that our colleagues Albert and Comfort Ocran have been running in Ghana for a number of years, Teenpreneur is all about developing entrepreneurial mindsets and attitudes in our youth. A recent study by ‘Unltd’ showed that 54% of young people today are thinking about having their own business as oppose to pursuing a traditional career path. This is not surprising. In fact it’s a change in trend that is in line with both national and economic conditions which in forcing many adults and young people to think of creative ways to make a living for themselves, on their own terms so to speak. At Teenpreneur we pride ourselves on giving young people access to established entrepreneurs that have come from similar backgrounds and that have achieved significant success in their business field. We have seen time and time again that young people that take part in Teenpreneur leave the event feeling empowered, inspired and dreaming of doing things they have never before thought possible.
