Young Upstarts

Young Upstarts   London Live



Young Upstarts is a factual entertainment documentary narrated by Radio 1 DJ Charlie Sloth, which follows the journeys of 4 entrepreneurs as they attempt to launch their businesses. With a lack of resources and limited time these daring business people know that there is no margin for error if they want to succeed.

Market research campaigns on shoestring budgets, roping in the help of family and friends to throw launch parties or devising ways to raise awareness with zero budget – these are just some of the challenges they face in their quest to be their own bosses.

Filmed over the course of their first months in business, the show captures the ups and downs that come with being self employed in the often intimidating and ruthless world of London start-ups. From technology to beauty and food to fashion we see the reality of how tough it can be to establish a new business but also how rewarding it can be when things work out.
