Youth Business Scotland is a programme provided by The Prince's Trust Scotland. It funds and supports young people to startup and grow a business.[1][2][3][4][5][6] It provides advice and financial support for young people between 18 and 30 who would like to start their own business. It is one of The Prince's Charities.

The Youth Business Scotland programme was formed in 2012 by the merger of The Prince’s Trust Scotland and sister charity The Prince's Trust Youth Business Scotland (formerly The Prince’s Scottish Youth Business Trust; PSYBT). The Prince’s Trust Scotland had been established in 2000 when The Prince’s Trust was devolved into English, Northern Ireland, Scottish and Welsh organisations. PSYBT had been established in 1989 by Charles, Prince of Wales.[7][8]

Previous businesses that have been supported include BrewDog,[1] MJM International and Lingo24.[9]
