SOCIAL MEDIA NEWS: Virgin Media launches new B2B online community

Virgin Media and Enterprise UK have launched a B2B online community aimed at encouraging more young entrepreneurs to make their ideas a reality.

Virgin Media Pioneers will bring young people with an idea together with established business experts in the hope of creating better businesses in the future. The site is designed to harness the fresh business ideas entrepreneurs have and encourage them to share thoughts and connect with peers by posting video blogs, questions and comments.

Virgin Media says that as a brand founded in entrepreneurial ambition it wants close the gap between those with an idea and those who can make it. Neil Berkett chief executive at Virgin Media comments on the benefits the Internet can provide, "The digital world can open up new opportunities and experiences for people from all backgrounds."

Enterprise UK is partnering with a number of youth organisations to source the first 100 ‘pioneers'. The project was completed with social media specialist, NixonMcInnes who delivered website design, build and brand identity.
