Mentoring, loans and grants for creative people aged 18-30

How it works

Good Story helps young creative and/or dyslexic entrepreneurs in the UK turn their business ideas from a dream in to a reality. Every three months, we award a select number of 18-30 year olds with free expert business mentoring and funding opportunities to help their business flourish.

Our next round of applications closes on the 30th April, so be sure to get your application in before then. Meanwhile, why not start thinking about what it is that makes your business a Good Story.

What's it all about?

Good Story was founded in loving memory of talented young clothing designer Mimi Watts, who died in a snowboarding accident in Chamonix, France on the 8th December 2012.

“Mims” inspired hundreds of people to follow their dreams by doing what they love, but just like so many others she struggled with the endless complexities of setting up her own business.

We want to give other people the opportunities that Mimi didn’t have by guiding them through their first steps of running a business and helping them with their applictions for funding.
