Start Up Programme

Need more than a one off 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.

The course fee is £300

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.
