Julius Ibrahim

I joined the Venture Creation Lab (VCL) programme in 2020 and have been supporting students on their path exploring social enterprise.

When I moved to London at age 21, I was shocked at the number of homeless people I saw and become passionate about finding a solution. Second Shot is all about 'bringing people together by tackling homelessness one espresso at a time'. The coffee shop on Bethnal Green Road, founded by me, employs people affected by homelessness, helping them with training and moving further on the workplace as well as running a pay-it-forward system, so you can pre-pay for an extra drink or snack when you buy your own brew, ensuring that someone on the street can get something to eat or drink for free. What's great about Second Shot is that people can contribute toward something more, just through buying their daily coffee. But more than that, they'll be receiving some of the best coffee London has to offer, made by individuals who not too long ago were homeless.
