We Need Your Help!
As parents of two 15-year-old boys we are incredibly proud of the hard work and effort they have put into creating their own brand of clothing Mykro Clothing. Their work ethic, creativity and business acumen has been inspirational.
Their journey so far!
For months on end, they have been working together to design, create and develop their brand, along with the slogan ‘small world, big opportunities’. This has a personal meaning to them, and nothing would make us parents prouder than to see them succeed.
Now designed, the boys have searched and decided on a supplier. Samples have been designed and shipped, along with some great photo shoots.
Building a market!
An immense amount of time has gone into this and pre orders are coming in fast! The boys have built a lot of momentum using social media platforms, and the response has been fantastic!
Their Ready To Go :)
So what is the problem?
The boys have approached many organisations, trusts, and other support for young entrepreneurs. They were looking for a grant or support for their first bulk order.
Unfortunately, there is NO HELP available to them due to their age. As parents we cannot believe that here, we have two young adults willing to make their way in the world, are demonstrating a strong work ethic and willingness to succeed and because they are not yet 16 – 18 years of age are being denied any support. They both work hard at school and show commendable skills.
So, the purpose of the Crowdfunder is to try to support the boys to reach a goal of £2000! This will all go on their first bulk order, to allow the momentum of the pre orders to take place.
Establishing a successful business from scratch is no joke. It takes immense planning and leadership to take the required actions to create a startup. One of the biggest challenges, while creating a business, is funds. Sometimes there are great talents with great ideas waiting to be implemented but not progressing due to lack of funds.
We would really like to change this pattern and are asking for support to allow the boys to progress in this journey.
It’s a shame to think that all their hard work and commitment will be held up due to a technicality! Their age. We think this should be commended, not condemned!
This is a great learning journey for the boys on their way to hopefully becoming successful entrepreneurs.
You can see all their effort here 😊
