Thrive access to employment application is now open, final submission date, 31st January 2020
Thrive is UnLtd’s new social accelerator helping ambitious social ventures to scale.
UnLtd will support over 25 social ventures a year through Thrive. They will support two groups of social ventures developing solutions in two distinct areas:
- Improving access to employment for those distant from the labour market
- Developing products and services for an ageing society.
Thrive combine six months of intensive support with the opportunity to secure investment of up to £50,000 for your social venture, either through UnLtd or their partners. This gives you the chance to grow your business, and ultimately deliver greater social impact.
Thrive builds on the learning from their Big Venture Challenge work, which supported 120 social ventures to collectively improve the lives of 1.24 million people in the UK and raise over £13m of investment to grow their businesses.
How Thrive can support you
UnLtd know that social ventures face barriers as they look to scale. Their research showed that the main barriers to growth are: accessing capital, establishing routes to market, finding talent, and measuring impact.
Their support is designed around these, and other, areas that they know are vital to enable growth. Each venture on Thrive will get 6 months’ support from a dedicated Venture Manager as they know this hands-on consultative led approach is vital for ventures as they scale. Alongside this, they provide peer-to-peer networking opportunities, high level connections, and access to appropriate finance.
