Providing cutting-edge support and affordable loans designed for social ventures

We are delighted to announce that our Seedbed Accelerator programme will run for a third year in 2017 starting this May.

As one of the leading social investment programmes in the South West, we offer social ventures access to loan finance and equity investment as well as the support, advice and guidance they need to develop and grow. Seedbed is perfect for those entrepreneurs looking to take their venture to the next level. Over 50 ventures have already benefitted from our one-of-a-kind programme over the last two years, so we’re thrilled to be able to continue our programme into 2017.

Open for applications – deadline 30th April 2017

If you’re interested in joining our programme this year, please head to our how to apply page or call our director Dirk Rohwedder on 01803 847066.

New for this year, in addition to the loan fund we have also created a small equity investment fund that can consider equity investments of up to £25,000 in 2017. Please contact us for more details.

Be sure to get your application forms to us by 30th April 2017.
