Notes to Editors:
Generation Success was launched by successful businessman James Adeleke. A law graduate of BPP University, London, James has enjoyed a varied career in business development. He was inspired to found Generation Success following the London riots of 2011 - himself a member of what tabloid media were calling 'the lost generation', he decided it was time to start reclaiming the future for today's youth. Rather than laying blame and pointing fingers, James wanted to find ways to tackle the roots of society's problems: food poverty; deprivation; educational and employment inequality. Generation Success is James' way of helping to ensure that every young person has the chance to shine.
"I truly believe that we are limited by the boundaries of our minds," says Adeleke, "so I am always trying to expand mine - and to help others to do the same."
