The Programme

The Silverpreneurs® programme includes three months of support delivered through a combination of group and 1-2-1 sessions, taking you from idea to launch, all set within a collaborative and supportive community of like-minded Silverpreneurs®


Silverpreneurs® strives to create an entrepreneurial hub for the over 50’s starting out on their  business journeys. Silverpreneurs® is more than just a business support programme. It’s a community of new business owners working together collaboratively sharing ideas, networks and coming together to have fun!

The Silverpreneurs® concept was created by founders Vernon Hogg and Chris Gough. Both had amassed years of experience and achieved success within the corporate world, but found themselves thinking – what’s next?

Neither was ready to slow down, so instead they both decided to funnel their drive, passion and experience into building their own successful businesses. It’s this experience that they would like to share with you as part of the Silverpreneurs® programme.

If you have a passion for business and the drive to make it happen, then the Silverpreneurs® community is for you.
