The LaunchMe programme, is a Firstport initiative designed to support social enterprises to scale and grow their impact. Now in its sixth round, the programme has raised the aspirations, and capacity growth in a number of social enterprise start-ups.
LaunchMe aims to develop a pool of strong, capable and ambitious social enterprises that can go on to secure investment so they can achieve social impact at scale. Selected participants receive a comprehensive support package that includes intensive one to one and group based business and investment readiness support, exclusive training from sector experts, a peer support network, and access to potential investors, lenders, and grant funders. In addition, each social enterprise receives a £10K repayable grant to get investment ready.
Attend one of their sessions here for advice and information on scaling your social enterprise or community group.
