19 year old Bilaal started by offering marketing support to local businesses

With guidance from the Combined Authority, he was able to attract new customers and grow his business.

Bilaal signed up for the Exploring Enterprise workshops to find out more about running his own business.

He’s now taking his marketing agency - BA Marketing and Designs - from strength to strength. See what he has to say about starting a business as a young person in West Yorkshire.
