The Midlands School for Social Entrepreneurs is open for applications until 30th April

In our opinion this is the best social enterprise start up programme around, so do apply you will not regret it. The programme starts in October 2020 (online if needs be) with online interviews during May & June.

What Do You Get?

  • A free learning programme (14 learning days, spread over a year)
  • A grant of between £1,000 & £7,000 (depending on which level)
  • A support network of like-minded people
  • Mentoring

The programme comes in three levels:

  • Start-Up – Your project is in the planning stages but ready to start, or less than two years old. It makes £0 – £15,000 a year. You want to learn how to establish your organisation.
  • Trade-Up – Your project was established at least a year ago, and probably has at least one paid member of staff. It makes at least £15,000 a year.  You want to learn how to strengthen your organisation’s finances and impact, to build a solid foundation.
  • Scale-Up – Your project was probably established two or more years ago, and probably has two or more paid members of staff. It makes at least £75,000 a year (no upper limit).  Your organisation already has a solid foundation. Now you want to learn how to scale it to create even more impact.
