Social Enterprise Start-up Fund
The Social Enterprise Start-up Fund is an €800,000 Fund which will be delivered over two years: 2021 – 2022.
The objective of the fund is to support social enterprises at the start-up / early stage of their life cycle, to embed strong business principles and, in turn, deliver social impact, create jobs and inspire an emerging, next generation of Irish social enterprises.
A social enterprise is a business that works primarily to improve the lives of people. Its business is social good. Social enterprises are at the heart of facing the greatest social challenges in Ireland. They are professional and experienced and use business skills and clever thinking to bridge the gaps in our society. The money they make from their work is used to grow what they do so that they can reach all the people in society who need their help.
Applications are invited from social enterprises (projects) that are at an early stage of their development and are looking to fully establish themselves in the market.
