Description

Join us as we announce this year’s winners of the €1.6 million Social Enterprise Development Fund at an event in Vertigo at Cork County Hall.

The fund was set up to support social enterprises from across the country to achieve their goals and create measurable social impact that can be scaled all over Ireland. The €1.6 million fund, created by Social Innovation Fund Ireland in partnership with Local Authorities Ireland, is supported by IPB Insurance and the Department of Rural and Community Development from the Dormant Accounts Fund.

Chosen from over 100 applicants from almost every county in Ireland, the 23 successful social enterprises come from of a mixture of urban, town and rural settings. Each awardee will receive a place on Ireland’s only Accelerator Programme designed specifically for social enterprises.

The Accelerator Programme is run in partnership with Local Authorities Ireland and provides intensive, expert and bespoke supports for social enterprises to hone their social impact, business skills and accelerate their growth. Eight of the awardees will also receive a cash grant of €50,000 each.
