Career Development: The Bank of TMC

"TMC and my mentor supported me with my personal growth as an entrepreneur. TMC's program gave me confidence and support."

Jessica Okoro (opposite) - BeScience STEM* Founder and Director,

We developed The Bank of TMC with young people, and it ran from 2011 until 2015. The Bank offered young people (16 – 25) mentoring, knowledge exchange workshops and business coaching services, as well as a portfolio of micro finance investments to start and grow socially driven activity and business.

More than 250 young people were supported to create new jobs and new enterprise start-ups. We also supported over 90 businesses already delivering services to children and young people to sustain and grow their offers.

Here are a few examples of the young people and businesses the Bank of TMC helped support, including the dance company, Moving Together feature above.

Whilst The Bank of TMC Investment Fund is currently closed for new applications, we remain committed to working with our graduate businesses and new social entrepreneurs through our community network.

If you are interested in collaborating to build better worlds for young businesses and children’s communities.
