The deadline to apply for Lloyds Bank Social Entrepreneurs Trade Up Programme 2018 is fast approaching. Applications for the scheme, which helps established start-ups increase their income and impact, must be received by 1pm on Thursday 26th April 2018.
The free programme is open to all social enterprises, charities or impact projects which have been running for at least a year and are making more than £15,000 per year. It consists of 12-14 days, spread over a year from October 2018 to October 2019, in one or two-day blocks so you have enough time to get on with everything else. Sessions for South East attendees are held in London.
The programme could help you to:
- Learn how to strengthen your model and grow through sales, with 14 learning days spread over a year.
- Fund your plans with up to £4,000 from a Match Trading Grant: funding that matches sales growth pound-for-pound.
- Get to know other social entrepreneurs, who’ll support your plans and help you through tough times.
- Be supported by a one-to-one mentor.
