This month, insider talks to Ultraleap founder Tom…
A syndicate of 15 business angels have completed a £400,000 investment in 2B Enterprising, an enterprise skills programme creator headquartered in Swansea.
Led by Angels Invest Wales lead investor Ashley Cooper, the syndicate has invested £275,000 across two consecutive funding rounds alongside £125,000 from the Development Bank of Wales’ Wales Angel Co-investment Fund.
With the support of Angels Invest Wales, the equity investment is being used to scale-up activity; funding a series of appointments including Jayne Brewer as chief executive and the further development of class materials for use by schools throughout Wales and England.
Established by enterprise educator Sue Poole, 2B Enterprising has created and introduced the Bumbles of Honeywood as an enterprise skills programme specifically for children aged five to seven years old.
The Bumbles of Honeywood features a series of illustrated books and more than 120 activities that enhance the teacher's toolkit and improve numeracy, literacy, digital and physical education skills alongside developing an enterprising mindset. 
More than 40 schools are already using the programme with 20 of these having been part of a 24 month pilot programme, to help develop life skills and future aspirations.
The programme is funded by a unique corporate engagement partnership programme (CEPP) that involves local and national businesses partnering with schools to bring real life enterprise experience into the classroom. Partners already confirmed include Swansea.com, Dawsons Estate Agents, The Fab Four Coffee, GS Verde Group and Bluestone Resorts.
Sue Poole said: “Our vision is a community where school pathways and future career choices for all young people are equally valued and respected. With the support of the Development Bank and our syndicate of business angels, we can now reach out to so many more youngsters initially across the UK, and then abroad; helping them to grow into capable, healthy, well-rounded individuals who can become ambitious, resourceful and successful adults.”
Jayne Brewer added: “The Bumbles of Honeywood provides a wonderful selection of lesson-ready resources and connections to bring real life enterprise into the classroom. It also gives businesses the opportunity to strengthen their links with their community, engage with a younger audience and improve employee satisfaction. 
“It's an innovative programme that is being delivered by a close and committed team who all share a real passion to inspire future generations.”
Ashley Cooper, lead investor for the angel investment syndicate, said: “The 2B Enterprising model allows businesses to directly impact the youngest in our community making a significant difference to millions of young people both in the UK and abroad, to the significant benefit of future economic success. We look forward to working with the many business leaders and their organisations who are joining our Corporate Engagement Partnership Programme.”
Entrepreneur and co-founder of Mazuma Accountants, Lucy Cohen, is one of the investors working alongside Ashley Cooper as part of the syndicate.
She said: “This is my first investment as a business angel and I’m delighted to be part of such a talented and ambitious syndicate that is already working together by pooling our expertise to support the team and help to drive the business forward.”
Carol Hall of Angels Invest Wales added: “Encouraging young people to become enterprising is an important step in helping to unlock the longer-term potential of our economy and create opportunity for all.”
GS Verde Group advised 2B Enterprising.
