UnLtd: Supporting Social Entrepreneurs

Often, people have brilliant ideas and/or endless passion for being social entrepreneurs and making and impact on the world around them, but they are rendered useless due to a lack of cash flow. This is the gap that UnLtd aims to fill!

UnLtd is the leading provider of support to social entrepreneurs in the UK and offers the largest such network in the world. It resources hundreds of individuals each year through its core Awards programme. UnLtd operates a unique model by investing directly in individuals and offering a complete package of resources; from Awards of funding, to ongoing advice, networking and practical support.

UnLtd supports individuals who have their ventures firmly rooted in delivering positive social change. The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (Harding and Harding 2008) found that there were 1.7m people leading social organisations in the UK. UnLtd resources community entrepreneurs to start-up; support those with more established ventures to scale up; and are committed to developing an eco-system of support to make it easier for those who need help to find it.

You can support UnLtd by partnering with them in the following ways:
·      Funders: If you have funds you’d like to use to create positive social impact, UnLtd can help by supporting Social Entrepreneurs.
·      Mentors: If you have specialist knowledge that you’d like to share with Social Entrepreneurs, UnLtd can help match you with the right individuals.
