Firstport will introduce LaunchMe, Scotland’s first accelerator programme for ambitious social enterprises.
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. The first Cohort has been selected and started on the LaunchMe programme. Applications have now opened for the second Cohort and close in January 2015.
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 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'll also be joined by two social entrepreneurs who will share their journey and learning.
