This week UnLtd turned 5!
The social entrepreneur funding company that is backing our new GoodLab.
Here’s what you need to know.
-UnLtd are a wicked organisation that find, fund and support budding social entrepreneurs across the country and they are funding us to build an incubator programme to help social ventures scale.
-UoB, UWE and a local business called Social Enterprise Works are delivering this programme and it launches on Tuesday. We have ventures from both universities, students and staff, and from the local community all coming together to grow and learn from each other.
-It’s going to be great because it is a new collaboration with tonnes of resources and an online platform where all the learning will be open source. Even better, we are going to be (fingers crossed) getting a space in the Engine Shed which not only a super cool space but packed with other startups.
-What’s in it for you? Come down to the launch and meet local businesses and key players in social enterprise. Get involved on a project, pitch your skills or just learn something new.
Hamilton House, Tuesday at 5-7pm. (Free drinks and nibbles!).
