Bailey 18, once disconnected and uninspired by mainstream education, found his passion and purpose, transforming into a buzzing, excited young entrepreneur generating multiple streams of income.
At just 18, Bailey isn’t your typical teenager. With the backing of Curious Entrepreneurs Community, he transformed from a school student feeling out of place to a thriving entrepreneur, all while juggling his A-levels.
Building a business from his loft
Bailey’s journey kicked off in the family loft, where he turned a 3D printer and a small investment into a booming cookie cutter business. Orders poured in, and Bailey’s creations became a hit on platforms like Etsy. But this was just the beginning.
Despite the pressure to follow a traditional educational path, Bailey’s entrepreneurial spirit couldn’t be contained. The Ignite Programme became his launchpad, a space where his business aspirations were nurtured and amplified.
A pivotal moment was his attendance at Atomicon, an experience that left him electrified with ideas and connections. “He came home absolutely buzzing,” recalls Bailey’s dad. “Sam, I will forever be grateful for what you and Alex are doing, thank you so much from both of us.”
Diversifying into tech
Today, Bailey is on the cusp of breaking into the AI world, with plans for an innovative AI sleeve venture. It’s a bold leap, fuelled by the unwavering support of Curious Entrepreneurs Community and a testament to the transformative power of tailored support for young, aspiring entrepreneurs.
