Applications Open For Spring Social Impact Accelerator

5th November 2018

Applications are now open to early-stage businesses targeting social impact to join the Spring Resurgo Ventures Social Impact Accelerator. The programme follows on from the success of the inaugural Social Impact Accelerator, which supported entrepreneurs from businesses tackling a variety of social challenges.

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 in Central London 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 Spring 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 Spring Social Impact Accelerator, starting in January 2019. Find out more here.
