Don’t Let a Good Idea go to Waste!
7th March 2017
Social Entrepreneurs Ireland launched their 2017 Awards Programme last month, supported by DCC plc, calling for applications from ambitious individuals with ideas to create positive social change in Ireland. The call is for people with early-stage ideas right through to people who are ready to grow and scale their existing organisations, to apply at: http://socialentrepreneurs.ie/
The eight Award winners will join Ireland’s largest network of social entrepreneurs. As well as an immediate €10,000 in unrestricted funding, they will receive a place on an accelerator programme worth €15,000, with access to over 150 pro-bono supporters, coaches and mentors. The programme will explore options for further funding and support from Social Entrepreneurs Ireland.
Applications to the Awards programme and the Academy close at 5pm on March 29th.
A series of roadshows – public workshop and training events for aspiring social entrepreneurs – are scheduled around the country. Interested candidates can apply or find out more at: http://socialentrepreneurs.ie/
