I’ve been asked to work with Supa Academy – a brand new concept and UK first ‘Retail Hack’ event. If you are young and feel like you could be the next big entrepreneur you need to check these guys out.
The two guys leading the company are extremely inspirational in their own right, from Bejay Mulenga – teenage entrepreneur who founded Supa Tuck at the age of 13 to Liam Toothill, Director of SBTV and creative consultant for the likes of SYCO Entertainment.

Hosted by Edith Bowman and created in partnership with Barclays LifeSkills, the Supa Academy Hack 2015 will take place July 24th–26th at The Old Truman Brewery, London.
The 3-day event will give successful applicants the chance to work with huge global brands such as River Island, Facebook and Pepsi Max, be mentored by influential industry specialists and earn revenue through creating, setting up and running a Supa Academy supermarket, e-commerce platform and auction.
We (Ben White and myself) will be working with the in house team to help amplify the event and help reach out to 500 new ‘Supa Partners’ over the next couple of weeks using digital channels to tell the Supa story and inspire young creatives and entrepreneurs.

We’ll be looking for innovative and trending ways to reach out to young entrepreneurs across the UK – so if you know someone who this would appeal to tell them to apply to be involved now!
