Funding is now available for enterprise ideas to help tackle social problems or improve communities and the environment.
The Liverpool Guild of Students Social Enterprise Challenge offers a helping hand to students running their own innovative projects, whether it’s a campaign, practical project or work experience in a community.
Students can access up to £500 from the Guild’s Seed Fund for financial start-up support as well as help from experts to get their ideas off the ground.
Those interested in finding out more or applying should download the Application Form and Guidance information. Applications will close on Friday, 20 November.
After the closing date, all applications will be reviewed and applicants will be invited to the next stage of judging. This will involve a presentation of ideas at the Social Enterprise Challenge Showcase Evening on Wednesday, 25 November, which will be judged by a panel of experts who will also announce the winning teams and final funding grants.
A total of eight social enterprises benefitted from the Guild’s Seed Funding last year, including the fastest human powered vehicle and cycling schemes as well as rooftop farming and allotment spaces.
