It’s not too late! You can still join the Seedbed support programme. But applications need to be in by 30 September 2017

The Seedbed social investment programme looks to help social ventures across the south west to realise their potential by providing affordable loan finance and early equity investment with individually tailored support. With a range of activities to help your social venture grow plus your very own Seedbed coach to work on your plans and proposals, we can help you launch a new service, product or to simply expand your venture. Download the guidance notes to find out more about the programme and funds from our website.

Seedbed has helped us to set out exactly what we needed to do to grow and achieve our goals. The support programme helped us to realise our unique selling points which in turned helped us to create a business proposal to grow our venture.
