The Prince’s Initiative for Mature Enterprise (PRIME) is a national organisation dedicated to providing everyone over 50, who is unemployed or under threat of redundancy, with the support to achieve financial, social and personal fulfilment through sustainable self-employment.
PRIME was established by HRH The Prince of Wales in response to the number of letters he was receiving from people desperate to work but unable to find anyone to employ them because of their age.
PRIME supports over 50s in the UK to become self-employed and in doing so utilise the skills and experiences they have built up over a lifetime of work. It offers workshops, advice, mentors and regular networking opportunities to help senior entrepreneurs to take the next steps to develop their own businesses and social enterprises.
