A budding London entrepreneur has used his interest in business and social enterprise to create job opportunities for the homeless in London.

20 year-old Julius Ibrahim, a final year Economics student at UCL, has opened the café, Second Shot, because of his interests in food and social enterprise. Ibrahim believes that homelessness can happen to anyone and is extremely passionate about the issue, being faced everyday by so many cases in London. With his business skills, Ibrahim wants to inspire others by bringing “social enterprise into the mainstream”.

Ibrahim is looking to open ‘Second Shot’ in December, recruiting from homeless charities in London. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to work full time at Second Shot, being paid the standard London living wage. The coffee shop’s profits will be used to provide training and support for employees to work and learn, helping them with their transition back into their sector of choice.

Julius hopes his charitable goals for his business is an inspiring idea that people will connect with, helping to raise his target of £75,000 which will make his vision happen.
