Power Up Scotland develops early stage social businesses - up to 3 years trading - through investment, business support and cross-sector partnerships.
This pre-seed accelerator programme offers each social enterprise 3-months of mentorship from a team of corporate professionals, and is not only focused on assisting funding recipients to be investment-ready, but also addressing the specific needs of the organisation.
The programme includes:
Access to social finance and investment readiness support
Potential routes to market through Power Up Scotland partners
Specialised business support from senior corporate and public sector partners
Leadership development to create a sustainable social business
At the end of the programme funding recipients will be invited to pitch for up to £50,000 of investment.
