UnLtd have launched ‘Thrive’, a brand new three-year Accelerator programme which will provide intensive support to social ventures addressing ‘Access to Employment’ and wanting to scale up quickly. We are looking for 20 social ventures operating anywhere in the UK that are improving access to employment for those distant from the labour market.

Thrive is a unique and exciting programme which gives you the chance to grow your business, and ultimately deliver greater social impact. We are looking for ventures who can evidence traction in their market and who can point to social impact being delivered.

What we are offering

Each successful social venture will receive six months of intensive 1:1 bespoke business support alongside additional pro-bono support from a number of flagship partners, such as UBS and Hogan Lovells. Our support is tailored, but is built around:

  • Business planning, financial modelling & strategic advice
  • Raising capital
  • Developing routes to market
  • Accessing specialist advice
  • Developing governance
  • Evidencing impact and refining your theory of change

We are also offering the opportunity to secure up to £50,000 of repayable capital if it is appropriate for your growth plans.
