Have you got a business that creates social change?
Cambridge Social Ventures supports a whole range of businesses that have positive social and environmental impacts.
Our ventures work in diverse fields such as health, transport, housing, ageing and education. They range from local to global in scale, and include technology startups, public sector, community organisations, university spinouts and everything in between.
Our programmes are designed for people who will drive their businesses forward to create real, scaleable, lasting social or environmental change. The Social Venture Weekends give emerging social entrepreneurs two-and-a-half days of world-class training, and our incubator programme supports selected ventures with 12 months of ongoing regular business advice and coaching, free shared workspace if required and support to access loan finance.
Our Social Venture Weekends are for anyone with an ambition to set up or grow a business that makes a positive social or environmental impact across all sectors, from employment to genomics, ageing to energy. Our next weekend is in July 2023.
