Applications Open for the Autumn Resurgo Ventures Social Impact Accelerator

15th May 2018

Applications are now open to early-stage businesses targeting social impact to join the September intake of the Resurgo Ventures Social Impact Accelerator. The programme follows on from the success of the current Accelerator community, which is supporting entrepreneurs from seven businesses to tackle a variety of social challenges in an impactful and sustainable way.

The twelve-week programme, aimed at social entrepreneurs, provides award-winning coaching expertise from Resurgo, together with a selection of world-class sector leaders to train the cohort on business strategy, social impact measurement, marketing, operations and product development, as well as focusing on personal character development, purpose and leadership. Successful applicants will also receive access to free office space for the duration of the accelerator.

Gordon Eichhorst, Head of Resurgo Ventures said, “Our first accelerator programme confirmed to us that talented entrepreneurs who have exciting visions for embedding social purpose into the heart of their business plan are a strong and growing community that deserves greater support. We see our purpose as encouraging them to realise their vision and equipping them with the tools, advice, mentoring and investment that will collectively increase their chance of success.  We can’t wait to meet more members of this community and to hear more about their plans.”

Tom Jackson, Chief Executive of Resurgo Trust, the organisation behind the programme, said, “Resurgo Ventures brings entrepreneurs, experts and investors together in a close partnership to make innovation and real social change happen. I’m delighted applications are now open to join the Autumn programme, and encourage talented and ambitious entrepreneurs to apply.”

We’re looking for early stage entrepreneurs building sustainable businesses with positive social impact. If this is you, we’d love you to apply for the Autumn Social Impact Accelerator, starting this September. Find out more here.
