Start Up Programme

We are now piloting our start up programme via Zoom, based on the hugely successful curriculum we’ve been delivering face to face in small groups for the past seven years.

To ensure we’re right for you, and that you get the most from the programme, we offer a 1:1 hour and a half long 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 costs £40, which will be deducted from the price of the full programme if you decide to go ahead.

Our autumn small group programme begins on Wednesday 16 September 10.30-12.30 for 5 weeks, followed by 4 monthly goal setting sessions.  We recommend this format as you’ll have the benefit of expertise, support and feedback from like minded ethical founders.

If you prefer 1:1 sessions, you can book the same 5 session programme for yourself (and any collaborators) by emailing

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:  £300

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 re-opens.

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 for further details
