Firstport will introduce LaunchMe, Scotland’s first accelerator programme for ambitious social enterprises. This event will give you the information you need to share this opportunity with your networks and clients.
This pioneering programme is on a mission to find 15 early stage social enterprises that could use social investment to scale up their business within the next 3 years.
LaunchMe will take a selective cohort of high-growth potential social enterprises through an intensive programme of business support, investment readiness, investment brokerage and mentoring. Participants will get the opportunity to apply for seed funding and additional funding to match any investment secured within the programme timeframes.
You will hear about Firstport’s plans to build a pipeline of investible social enterprises in Scotland, and how we’ll connect them with the investors who can help them to rapidly scale up their operations and their impact. We will also be joined by two social entrepreneurs who will share their journey and learning, including Debra Riddell from Breadshare who will talk about her experience of developing a community bakery in the Borders and how LaunchMe is helping them to scale up its business.
