Lord Young
Patron, X-Forces Enterprise

 

(Back to About Us)

Following a career in Law and Business, Lord Young was created a life peer in 1984. In October 2010, he was appointed Enterprise Adviser to the Prime Minister and asked to conduct a review of the relationship of government to small firms. This resulted in a three-part review to the Prime Minister on enterprise and small business.

In May 2012, he delivered the first part of this review. Entitled Make Business Your Business, it was the first of its kind since 1971. This report highlighted the number of start-up businesses that indicate a growing culture of enterprise and entrepreneurship in the UK. The report also introduced a new Government programme, Start Up Loans, providing loans and mentoring to get a business venture started. X-Forces Enterprise was introduced to Start Up Loans directly by Lord Young and we have facilitated seed capital through the scheme ever since.

Having been X-Forces Enterprise’s founding Patron in 2013, Lord Young accepted the role again on its 3rd Anniversary in July 2016.
