Our impact
What does impact mean for us?
Our direct impact is the effect we have on social entrepreneurs and the ventures we help them set up or grow.
Jenny Dawson, Rubies in the Rubble
and that helps social entrepreneurs to create...
social impact!
What happens when we support a social entrepreneur?
“The award has helped me believe in myself because UnLtd could see the idea was good.”
Would not have run their venture, or would have struggled to do so, without their Award
We change people's perceptions of what they can do
We offer connections to other financial and non-financial support
Our support offer is designed to help people through the different stages and transitions in their journeys
Pro-bono advice and mentoring
Peer support
Access to investors
Conceiving and developing idea
Piloting, testing and refining
Small scale sustainability
Scaling or replication
Character and attributes
Motivation and inspiration
Background and experiences
Venture stops running
Social entrepreneur steps back
These are options at any stage...
The journey of a social entrepreneur: learning by doing
We help people turn their ideas into action....
Assembling resources
Getting others interested
Formal or informal planning
Delivering at a small scale to see if the idea works
Learning what's needed to deliver
Finding a business model that's financially and personally sustainable
Gradual growth and development
Securing investment
Building a team
Growing the venture, or its impact, quickly
We don't assume that everyone will go through all stages
Or even that they want to
But they don't necessarily represent 'failure'
Aim achieved
Approach taken on by a mainstream service
Business can't be sustained
Personal or financial circumstances change
Moves on to set up another venture
Doing everything yourself
Alex Lockett, Project Pigeon
Alex initially received a start up Award for Project Pigeon through UnLtd's Engage programme. Later, she got £10,000 to help make the venture sustainable. She's now looking to replicate her pigeon fancying workshops, which bring old and young together, in different parts of the country
