Kess Majemite: Ten Over Ten


Kess Majemite is the founder of Ten Over Ten, a mobile disco, which launched in August 2013, with the support of the PNE Enterprise team. Ten Over Ten offers quality DJing and MCing for weddings, birthdays, and other private functions.

Kess launched his business to become his own boss. Although he had a passion for music, Kess sought the advice and guidance offered to him by the PNE Enterprise team.

On reflection of his experience with Newcastle-based enterprise agency, Kess said, “The support I’ve received from the PNE Enterprise team has been phenomenal. I have so much respect for the team.

“Without their support, and without the one-to-one meetings with my business advisor, Lee Longstaff, I wouldn’t have been in the position to launch my own business.”

Business advisor Lee Longstaff worked alongside Kess, supporting him with his application for the New Enterprise Allowance. Since 2011, the New Enterprise Allowance scheme has supported over 105,500 individuals receiving Jobseeker’s Allowance to launch their own business.

Following successful application for the New Enterprise Allowance, Kess attended PNE Enterprise’s 2 Day Intensive Business Course to learn more about running a business and continued to receive one-to-one appointments with Lee which covered everything from business planning to marketing.

Reflecting on his responsibility as a business owner, Kess said, “Running a business is no easy feat. On reflection of my five years in business, I would tell anyone considering starting their own business to never give up and to be optimistic.”
