Highlands and Islands Social Enterprise Zone launched HISEZ Fusion at the end of January 2016 to support the networking and education of Entrepreneurs. Fusion was originally established in 2002 to support the development of entrepreneurship and although the project itself has come to an end, HISEZ Fusion will continue this supportive role for the next five years. A number of services will be provided including the following specifically aimed at young entrepreneurs:
- £500 each year to enable school children to travel to enterprise events
- To encourage those who have started a school-based business to consider taking it forward as a serious business, £500 a year loan funding will be available.
- Delivery of sessions on social enterprise and finance in schools, colleges, and other arenas with young people, such as Young Enterprise Scotland (YES), across the Highlands and Islands.
- In partnership with YES, £1000 is available each year to enable more schools in the area to register with YES by offering a contribution to the start-up funds required.
