How did we start?
In 1988, the Wandsworth Youth Enterprise Centre was set up as a training facility to aid the high unemployment in the Wandsworth Borough. Funded by rental income from sites in the Tooting area, WYEC developed into Business Launchpad.
Trident Business Centre in Tooting became our home and also our primary source of funding. The rental income from the centre has allowed us to honour our commitment to giving young people essential skills and advice to develop enterprise and leadership skills, as well as providing places to operate and test their business ideas. The work we do with small businesses has earned the Social Enterprise Mark and support from partners and leaders in the technology, finance and media industry.
