Need more than a ‘how to’ start up webinar or book, but not sure you’re ready for the long term commitment of an accelerator?
If you’re building a future CIC, BCorp or charity, or have an idea but are struggling to find your focus, customers and funders we’d love to work with you to realise your vision
We are now taking applications for our female founders start up programme
Over the initial 5 week programme you’ll step back from the day to day overwhelm and set yourself strategic and achievable goals based on a business plan that makes sense for you and attracts the early adopters who will help you to scale. At the end of the start up programme you’ll have 4 monthly goal setting sessions to keep you on track. We can offer additional 1:1 consultancy support to help you with specific tasks such as registering your business, financial management, social media strategies, pitch decks and grant applications.
You’ll have the benefit of expertise, support and feedback from like minded ethical founders in your cohort, and 200+ Bloomsbury Beginnings’ alumni
Whether you’ve been working on your project for a while, need to change direction, or are just starting out these sessions are for you
If you want to make sure we’re right for you, and that you get the most from the programme, why not book a 1:1 taster session with the course director? You’ll discuss your unique opportunities and challenges, learn how to use the business modelling tools and be matched with other social impact founders whose propositions or stage of development compliment yours. This session normally costs £40, but is currently being offered free of charge, with the support of the Equip ESF programme.Start Up Programme Brochure Taster Session
We will be able to offer face to face groups again in the beautiful, peaceful surroundings of Calthorpe Community Garden in central London once it is safe to do so
As a social enterprise, we offer a limited number of free bursary places on our courses to people on a low income with ideas which tackle significant social, economic or environmental problems. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further details

What Our Alumni Say
Silvia Menabe, Baby Brains
It has helped me greatly to get some clarity and confidence about the business priorities of my small company. I have been much more focused since participating and things have started rolling
Ruth Sabrosa, Ruth Sabrosa Hypnobirthing & Mindful Mothering
The course was an inspiration. I spent time on my business and not just in it, met some amazing women, realised who my ideal client is and have been attracting her ever since.
Eleanor Thorn, TunedIn London
I loved the fact that I gained real clarity about what I wanted to achieve, and I was surrounded by smart, supportive women who gave me feedback about how I presented and sold my very unique proposition. I went away re-energised and confident.
Rebekah, Curly Pops Box
I’ve loved the fortnightly sessions which has worked really well for me and managed to slot in well with my day job too. The sessions have been really focused but also linked together well. Ann is such a positive person and has really helped me see my strengths and overcome a lot of barriers I had in my mind!
