KashFlow Founder Duane Jackson named Brightside Start-Up Loans Ambassador

Duane Jackson to help budding young entrepreneurs break into business

KashFlow founder and CEO Duane Jackson is putting his entrepreneurial experience to good use as an ambassador for Brightside Start-Up Loans, an initiative from mentoring charity Brightside.

Brightside is a delivery partner for the government-backed Start-Up Loans scheme, which helps young people aged 18-30 to turn their business idea into a fully fledged start-up, matching young aspiring entrepreneurs with trained business mentors and providing them with a government loan of up to £10,000 to get their business off the ground. The Start-Up Loans scheme aims to distribute over £117m to new businesses in England by 2015.

Duane Jackson, Founder of KashFlow commented:

“I’ve been mentored by Lord Young since I started KashFlow and the advice and support I get from him is invaluable. I immediately jumped on the chance to be a Brightside Start-Up Loans ambassador, not only to pay it forward, but also because I wholeheartedly agree with their philosophy that it’s talent and not someone’s background or past that defines their chances of succeeding in business. Getting started is often the hard part so I hope I can help young entrepreneurs take that first step and get their business off the ground.”

Duane is sharing his business knowledge by taking part in a Twitter Q&A in association with Brightside Start-Up Loans on Friday 15th March, 2pm. People with questions can send them to Duane using #AskDuane or @duanejackson.
