MIV Catch Up - The Kent Foundation

The Kent Foundation joined us on Twitter for #MIVReveals on 5th October 2016. The Kent Foundation is a charity offering free business support to Kent's young people who want to start or grow a business in Kent. They work with all stages of business including pre-startup, business startup and business growth.

@KentFoundation How can you help young business people? #MIVReveals

@Myincventures We talk to #youngentrepreneurs about their business ideas, vision for success and how they will achieve it.  Talking to young people about their #startup #businessgrowth needs is hugely valuable, as business can be lonely #MIVReveals
