UnLtd’s Thrive accelerator programme, ‘Solutions for an Ageing Society’, now open for applications

UnLtd has just announced that Thrive, its new social accelerator programme designed to help ambitious social ventures to grow, has re-opened for applications.

The ‘Solutions for an Ageing Society’ (SfAS) Accelerator is looking for eight game-changing social businesses who want to grow nationally and contribute to significantly improving the quality of life for the over 50s.

Specifically, UnLtd is looking for social entrepreneurs who are delivering solutions that improve outcomes around:

  • Quality of Life.
  • Wellbeing.
  • Loneliness.
  • Independence.
  • Support for Dementia/Alzheimer’s.


Successful applicants will work with a dedicated, highly skilled Venture Manager and will receive 1-to-1 tailored support, access to a specialised network, first class social impact measurement support and the opportunity to take on up to £50K of investment (debt or equity). You’ll be assessed on performance to date, potential for growth and profitability. In return you’ll have the opportunity to scale both your organisation and impact rapidly.

If you have been typically operating for 2 – 6 years and have a clear social mission and demonstrable social impact UnLtd wants to hear from you.

Register your interest before the end of September 2019.
