After 6 months of intense weekly workshops, mentoring, coaching, 1-2-1s, and chip-eating sessions down the pub, the Founders of 10 great new social innovations have completed our Incubation programme. To celebrate their journey we held an event dedciated to the unveiling of their products, services and enterprises; ‘The Next Big Social Thing’;
Still a bit hazy on the what / why / how of our Incubation programme? Take 5 mins to watch this short explainer vid and it’ll get you up to speed. We’ve also got some great short intro videos to each of the Founders – why don’t you go and (virtually) meet them?!
The event was designed in collaboration with TMP Member PopUp! Scotland and was an interactive-style afternoon, with the talented founders using a range of creative approaches to bring the services of their new social enterprises to life. We’ve had oodles of positive feedback over its format – innovative, engaging, accessible – and much excitement over the new initiatives coming through the social innovation pipeline. Most importantly many strategic connections and even investments were made on the day.
If you’ve got a great idea for social impact, and are thinking about applying to our next ‘Incubation programme’ (starting September 2016), then register your interest now with Claire.
