This Spring, as we emerge with trepidation from the worst of the pandemic, we need fresh new business ideas to make the new normal anything but ordinary. That’s why Investec Beyond Business is seeking the best social enterprises delivering hope as we start to look forward again.

You could be already trading (since July 2020), or just at the idea stage – as long as you have a clear social purpose we want to hear from you. If selected, you will receive funding of up to £20,000, plus expert mentoring and support to grow and flourish.

About the programme

Investec Beyond Business is a successful support scheme that has helped launch over 50 social businesses in the East End. Successful applicants will receive:

Join our impressive alumni alongside businesses like In.Dent who partner with organisations such as NHS trusts, charities and universities to deliver oral health events and mobile dental services to vulnerable groups.
