Welcome to the one-stop-shop for young entrepreneurs primarily in the UK. This is the place where you find everything you need to turn that idea into reality, and where you’ll be inspired by people just like you. It’s by and for Generation Z.
At the moment this is work in progress, but the main website is coming very soon!
GenZ Insight has applied for social enterprise status and is striving for the benefit of young entrepreneurs pursuing their passion. Whether you are trying a side-hustle, launching a start-up, or building up your brand, we’re there with you, advising, listening and sharing the journey.
Our Mission is to support, foster and inspire young people to become successful entrepreneurs. We aim to provide them affordable access to resources, in formats that best suit their learning styles. This will guide them on their unique entrepreneurial journeys.
Here’s a quote we live by:
‘Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.’
We are a mix of experience and innovation, insight and energy, and we’ve all earned our entrepreneurial stripes – and scars!
Elle is the multiple-award-winning co-founder of the company Twipes. Along with her business partner, Elle set up the company in 2015. Using her degree in bio-medical science, Elle invented Twipes, which are the first truly biodegradable, flushable wet wipe.

She is one of the ‘Forbes 30 under 30’.
Guy has over thirty years of knowledge, skills and experience. He has worked across a range of organisations from SMEs to large multi-nationals, firstly as a Human Resources professional and then as a consultant and project manager.
Guy took the plunge 20 years ago and has successfully run his own business ever since, with odd forays into joint businesses.
A published author and father of two GenZers, he is passionate about helping young people successfully integrate into the world of work as he thinks they have the skills and mindset to transform the planet.
Forty years in the media and communication industries has given Graham solid experience and know-how. He’s been everything from an award-winning writer to the founder and CEO of a full-service creative agency.
He’s spent the majority of his career working for himself and has started nine companies, one of which has been running for 23 years. Some have done well, and one failed eventually and spectacularly – he reckons that’s when he learned the most valuable lessons!
In addition we have an advisory panel of GenZ people and we walk the walk as well as talk the talk – our website company is run by a young entrepreneur, we are using a disruptor, start-up bank and our marketing is handled by GenZ marketeers.
We will offer a full range of courses, everything from: ‘How can I get an idea?’ through ‘How do I put a business plan together?’ to ‘How do I interview for my first employee?’ Whatever your real-world issue, we have courses you can go through at your own pace to help you navigate your exciting adventure.
Looking up videos on YouTube is certainly helpful, but there’s nothing like speaking to an expert, one-on-one. Every worry, thought and plan can be individually explored and resolved. GenZ Insight has a panel of experts, many of them GenZers themselves, with a range of experience in entrepreneurship that you can access. Costs are sensible, and you can book a time-slot with the expert of your choice.
Seminars for up to 6 people, webinars for up to 100 people – the choice is yours. Subjects will include finance, insurances, the law and accountancy as well as marketing, websites, purpose, employee engagement and much more.
