Our community programme is an ever evolving and broad range of support for founders alongside an annual programme of public events that are open to everyone.

This includes our one-to-one consultations programme, where entrepreneurs can share a business challenge and receive expert advice and support from a specialist volunteer, masterclasses, networking events, panel discussions and talks, pitch practice days and our peer mentoring programme, where early-stage impact founders can be paired with more experienced entrepreneurs for tailored advice for their businesses.
