for social entrepreneurs
Do you want to get better at generating income for your social enterprise? Would you like access to a peer support network to get good advice on how to grow your business? Do you think that you might be ‘too close to your business’ and need to take a step back, but never have enough time to do so? You are not alone! We promise.
Our community of exceptional social entrepreneurs can relate to the many challenges that growing a social business involves. Many have “been there” and have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share. This is why Hatch has decided to create these peer incubator and accelerator programmes, Hatch Impact. We will use this platform to facilitate learning experiences with successful social entrepreneurs (those who have come before), where they can share their wisdom, knowledge and network with those who need it next.
We believe that by providing this much-needed support from sector experts, together with our tried and tested programme methodology, we will be able to support purpose-led enterprises to develop more robust pathways to achieve organisational resilience, financial sustainability and most importantly, the ability to effectively scale their impact.
Our programmes (incubator or accelerator) are best suited to growing social enterprises between 1-5 years old, who have an annual turnover of £50 - £150K (including grant income), have 1-5 members of staff and are seeking to raise funds in the next 18-24 months.
