Eco Social Enterprise Start Up Programme

Application deadline 10th August 2018 4pm

Over six months, the programme will enable budding young social entrepreneurs to grow their startup eco-social enterprises. Practical enterprise sessions will boost your working knowledge of day to day running the enterprise, peer witness sessions will let you learn from those who are working in their own social enterprises and the Action Learning groups will give you a peer network of coaching style support to keep you on track to smash your goals.


Open to young people 16-24 yrs old from across the North West, UK, in Cheshire, Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Merseyside. Your idea needs to be tested out or an existing social enterprise running for less than 3 years making less than £15,000.


Part of our BEE You Project funded by Our Bright Future that aims to tackle three big challenges facing society today- a lack of social cohesion, a lack of opportunities for young people and vulnerability to climate change. 31 youth-led projects across the UK are each receiving around £1m of funding to give young people the skills and knowledge to improve their local environments- from reducing marine pollution to minimising food waste.
