UnLtd – Thrive (Supporting Social Ventures)

UnLtd has launched a brand new UK wide, three-year Accelerator programme called ‘“Thrive” whereby they will be providing 6-month intensive support to social ventures addressing ‘Access to Employment’ and wanting to scale up quickly. There’s also an opportunity for these social ventures to access some sort of social investment after the support period if it’s appropriate to them.

How we can support you

 We know that social ventures face barriers as they look to scale. Our research tells us that the main barriers to growth are: accessing capital, establishing routes to market, finding talent, and measuring impact. We design our support around these, and other, areas that we know are vital to get enable growth.

Each venture will get support from a dedicated Venture Manager as we know this hands-on consultative led approach is vital for ventures as they scale. Alongside this, we provide peer-to-peer networking opportunities, high level connections, and access to appropriate finance. We will deliver our support in-house, or where required, bring in external expertise from trusted partners. Our 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.

UnLtd are looking to support 20 social ventures each year.

The call out for this year (2018) is open now until the 27th March and the deadline for full applications is the 24th April with the Award Support/Programme starting on the 1st July and lating for 6 months.
