‘Thrive’ — UnLtd launches new social ventures support programme

UnLtd has just announced that it has launched a brand new UK wide, three-year Accelerator programme called ‘Thrive’.

Thrive will provide 6-months of intensive support to social ventures addressing ‘Access to Employment’ and wanting to scale up quickly, with an opportunity for these social ventures to access social investment after the support period if it’s appropriate to them.

The programme will support 20 social ventures each year and the call for this year is now open until 27/03/18. The deadline for full applications is 24/04/18 with the support starting on 01/07/18 for 6 months until 21/12/2018.

Each venture will get support from a dedicated Venture Manager. There will also be peer-to-peer networking opportunities, high level connections, and access to appropriate finance. Support is tailored, but is built around:

  • Business planning, financial modelling & strategic advice.
  • Raising capital
  • Developing routes to market
  • Accessing specialist advice
  • Developing governance
  • Evidencing impact and refining your theory of change.
