somewhereto_ is a Big Lottery-funded programme that helps young people, ages 16-25, find space to do the things they love for free. somewhereto_ was created by Livity, a youth engagement agency that works with young people to co-create and execute engaging campaigns with big brands and communities. Their clients get uniquely deep youth insights and a precious pool of young talent, energy and ideas. Young people who come through their doors get training, equipment, support and opportunities to build brighter futures.

Young entrepreneurs 16-25 years of age will have the opportunity to pitch their business idea to the Pexmas committee 11 November. Selected brand will then be given the slate of mentoring sessions on business development, price points, supply chains, market trading and presentation, as well as other pertinent topics. The young person will be given a free stall at Pexmas Christmas Market where they will be exposed to heavy footfall and a ready crowd clamouring to take advantage of their products during the holiday season.
