Starting a business can be daunting, and entrepreneur and businesswoman extraordinaire Janice Beckles believes aspiring business owners should be equipped with entrepreneurial skills early. That’s why she created Leep Academy, a socially responsible company committed to delivering quality, fun, entrepreneurial programmes to start-ups and business owners.
“I started my first business in my early thirties, I joined a project which provided essential business skills and coaching, it made a huge difference to the sustainability of my business” says Janice who has several achievements, including becoming an Institute of Leadership and Management Approved Centre.
Leep Academy have already ran a programme in Hackney and the results were amazing.
Start-up business owners developed tangible business ideas, they developed a range of entrepreneurial skills including cash flow, marketing and social media, their confidence grew immensely. Janice is clearly passionate about education, and the team are totally committed to the helping start-ups to thrive!
To date, Leep Academy have helped over 450 individuals develop business ideas across London, but the team are not content to stop there. It is their desire to work in collaboration with training providers and local authorities providing enterprise support and courses with the glowing testimonials coming from candidates this is becoming more and more a reality.
