Free Business School

Friends of Rebel

Collaboration is at the heart of the Rebel School

We’re able to deliver our award-winning courses thanks to our funding partners who ensure that no one has ever paid to attend a Rebel School course (and never will). Our generous supporters spread the word about a Rebel School course coming to their area so that more and more people get the opportunity to start a business and create life on their terms.

I can honestly say it’s changed my life!

I feel so proud that I’ve made the leap into setting up my own business and I know I wouldn’t have done it if I hadn’t attended.

Mark Young

I dread to think what mess I would be in today if I had not done the course.

Right from the start, I realised I was about to put another millstone around my neck if I continued with the lease and loan.

Going on the course gave me the confidence to make things happen.

If I didn’t attend, I don’t believe I would have got as far as I have and given me the leverage to take it the next level for 2021. You may not get this kind of opportunity anywhere else, not for free anyway!
