Supporting, connecting and inspiring the next generation of business owners, freelancers, side hustlers and aspiring entrepreneurs, throughout Dorset.


How can we help?

WeAreFND is a community for young founders, freelancers and side hustlers currently running in Dorset.

FND’s mission is to help and encourage young people to Follow New Dreams.

Found your business.

Fund your growth.

Find your network.

‘FND’ is powered by Dorset Growth Hub and is aimed at bringing together like-minded individuals to share ideas, develop new skills, and secure funding to power the ideas of the future.

We want you to meet like-minded, ambitious people and learn from fun, inspiring speakers who get what it’s like running a business at a young age.

It’s about making friends too, not just contacts!

We want to create a space and a community to be proud of and to inspire the next generation of young people, showing them that starting and succeeding in business is possible in Dorset – you don’t need to go to London, Bristol or Brighton.
