Bringing bright ideas to reality.

Orbit supports school students from San Francisco to Sydney to launch their own businesses.

The world's largest business incubator for students aged between 16 and 19 years old.

We help students bring their bright ideas to fruition. Orbit supports school students – aged between sixteen and nineteen years old – step by step through the process of launching their own businesses. 

Orbit is the world’s largest (and possibly the first) business incubator for school students. What began as a small non-profit social enterprise in Glasgow, Scotland, has since grown into a worldwide network of business incubators.

The incubator programme combines mentoring, workshops, online courses and access to leading business figures. With this powerful package of support our Orbiteers have launched businesses in sectors ranging from eCommerce to artificial intelligence.

The Programme.

Orbit’s incubator programme has supported over 500 students to launch their own businesses. Running from September to December every year, the incubator programme combines mentoring, workshops, online courses and access to leading business figures.
