Each has something in common: a unique idea for a social enterprise that, over time, will pour profits into freeing people from significant hardship or deprivation. Freedom can take many different forms. It might look like access to clean water, healthcare or education; delivery from child slavery; or perhaps work opportunities for the unemployed, just to name a few examples.
Those we support are always armed with an abundance of passion. But when they come to us they're missing what they really need to kickstart their business idea: funding, business expertise, and a bit of extra business support. And that’s where we step in.
We take applications from social entrepreneurs annually in March and, after assessing these against key criteria, offer successful applicants three things: Money, Mentoring and Muscle to bring their social enterprise dreams to life.
