With the help of football star Bukayo Saka and the UK agency Youth Beyond Borders, Ideatorr was created to support young and motivated entrepreneurs. The goal is to give them the skills, resources, and guidance they need to bring their social enterprise and community-based ideas to life.

Ideatorr connects these entrepreneurs with freelancers on Fiverr and taps into YBB’s expertise and mentor network to provide a supportive environment for their dreams. The first group of 12 entrepreneurs in the program will receive:

  • 8 weeks of live online curriculum covering topics across brand purpose, market research, etc.
  • 1:1 mentorship with inspiring mentors from Salesforce, The Inkey List, Manchester United, VC firms, and more
  • £1,500 in Fiverr credits and £1,000 in cash per entrepreneur
  • An opportunity for cash prizes at the final pitching event in December
  • Dedicated support and tailored freelancer recommendations from Fiverr CSMs
  • 1 year subscription to CreativeLive

Ideatorr fits with one of our main goals: helping people find work and opportunities. We want to support freelancers and entrepreneurs from different backgrounds who might not have many opportunities. By focusing on this goal, we are working to make a positive difference in the communities we serve.
