  • How can you Achieve it?

LAUNCHED! Ain't Nothing To It, But To Do It - quick video overview from Scott

The Lester Foundation

The Lester Foundation is a registered CAF Trust. Our goal is to help young entrepreneurs, in the UK and abroad, prepare for the intimidating world of business!

The Foundation objective is to support Charity organisations to inspire ambitious, young people that they can do it, regardless of background, or college grades and that self belief can take you most of the way. To inform them that there really ain't nothin to it, but to do it, when it comes to starting a business, or heading out to the commercial world.

​The Lester Foundation will never ask for external, financial donations to support causes. However, now and then, we may ask if you want to spend some time helping the next generation of entrepreneurs take their first steps.

The Lester Foundation crest

The Foundation supports several Charities, both financially, and with Scott's time, to help young people understand how business works, how to get confident and prepare them for success!
