Scaling up

If you have the ambition then we can help your successful social venture to scale. We provide specialist support for those looking to create sustainable impact across the UK.

Thrive, our accelerator, gives you access to a consultant and bespoke support for six months to help your venture to scale.

The UnLtd Impact Fund offers a practical funding package of up to £150,000 in repayable finance alongside tailored one to one support.

Both Thrive and the UnLtd Impact Fund are focussed on supporting social entrepreneurs with bold solutions that improve access to employment.

Our work is based on four years of experience with the Big Venture Challenge. It provided business support, powerful connections and match funding to 120 social entrepreneurs seeking to scale their venture and create a sustainable impact. Collectively they raised £4.4 million in grants and investments worth £8.6 million.

  • Operating for two to five years
