The Peter Jones Foundation believes that everyone deserves a brighter future!
Founded in 2005 by Peter Jones CBE, the Foundation’s primary aim is to drive a society-wide revolution that encourages self-belief in individuals to think differently and to inspire the nation to make enterprising decisions about their future. The Foundation currently runs the following initiatives:
- The Peter Jones Enterprise Academy
- Tycoon in Schools
The Peter Jones Enterprise Academy, founded in 2009, set out to be a catalyst for cultural change by bringing the boardroom into the classroom. The Academy runs a national network of education providers who aim to equip future generations of entrepreneurs with the skills and mindset to run their own businesses, thereby supporting the future of the British economy.

Tycoon in Schools is a nationwide campaign to get Britain’s school children involved in entrepreneurship. Launched in 2012, the competition gives school children a real opportunity to have a go at starting a business. Now in its second year, the competition has received backing from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, with a funding injection of £50,000 to help rollout the campaign and encourage more school children to take part.
