What are the benefits of being on this programme?
We know what it's like running a social enterprise, especially when you're just starting out. You are time poor, resource short and often working to low budgets. It's our mission to support emerging social enterprises with specialist business consultancy support:
- To get a fresh pair of eyes to help you tackle some the challenges that keep you awake at night- Your volunteer Consultant will bring specialist business expertise - You choose the specialist assignment for your volunteer- We match you with a volunteer who has experience in (and is able to support you with) that project
You will benefit from a strategic business angel who instead of financial investment will give you their time and expertise on a part time remote working basis whilst they take time out from their lives and careers to give back and share their skills.
The Process / your commitment: This is a registration for the _SocialStarters' Spring Programme to receive a Consultant between 25th March to 14th June 2019, as well as in Summer 2019 and Autumn 2019. Here you can identify 1 to 3 projects that your organisation could use support with. If we're confident we can match you, we will have a follow up call with you to further assess your needs and outline the assignment that you would like the consultant to carry out. We scope out your assignments into briefs that we can share with the prospective volunteer Consultants during the matching process, which takes place 6 weeks prior to the programme wave start date. This is a low-commitment programme, you'll be instantly signed up for all 3 waves and billed periodically, but if you decide to withdraw you can at any time from the following wave that has yet to start.
Our guarantee:This programme provides our clients with a guaranteed minimum of £2,000 of business support from an expert across each wave of the incubator. This is based on our Consultants providing 3 hours a week over 10 weeks. Typically our Consultants will provide on average 10-15 hours a week of support over 11 weeks (taking into account annual leave).
