Funding for Social Entrepreneurship at Goldsmiths

Goldsmiths has been selected as a partner of UnLtd/HEFCE for a HE support programme providing social entrepreneurship funding. If you are a member of staff, a student or a 2013 graduate of Goldsmiths and you have an idea that addresses a social issue in the UK, the funding could help you develop your project with either a “Try it” (£500) or “Do it” award (£1500).

The scheme, which is being delivered jointly with SOAS, will be officially launched at an ideas generation event on November 4th at Google Campus, where you’ll also find guidance for idea generation techniques and devising a pitch. More information can be found here.
