Entrepreneurial Schoolboy to Set up Business


An entrepreneurial Carmarthen teenager is preparing to set up in business – after discussing his ideas with billionaire Sir Terry Matthews.

As a first step Nick Cvetkovic has been given associate membership of Carmarthenshire County Council’s Beacon Centre for Enterprise in Dafen, Llanelli, which will give him access to The Beacon’s facilities including accommodation for a hot desk and meetings as well as business advice and support with business planning.

The Year 12 pupil at QE High School approached Sir Terry Matthews, who is Chair of the Swansea Bay City Region Board, to explain his plans and seek advice on setting up his own business. Nick has since started doing his research and development with a view to starting his business in the summer, at which point he hopes to be permanently located in The Beacon Centre for Enterprise.
