About the South East region.

Young Start-up Talent initially launched in 2010, in the Gatwick Diamond region. Since then, the initiative has proven to be very popular, with the number and quality of applicants increasing every year. We have seen a number of different businesses pass through the project over the eight years, many of which are now established and profitable.

As the company continues to grow in both success and popularity, the Gatwick Diamond region has become part of a much larger region, ‘South East’, under the Young Start-up Talent Scheme for 2018/19.
